Log Message:
quick guide for impatient reword netboot section, also macppc can netboot

mention that some older models not listed might work, but are untested
mention that some iMac (Bondi Blue) and PowerMacintosh G3 (Blue and White)
  systems have keyboard problems
mention that ttya is "modem" port, and ttyb is "printer" port

describe the keyboard workaround for PM G3 (B&W), and that 1.4.3 works
  fine for it and the iMac (Bondi)

make the whole BootROM/Open Firmware distinction clearer
describe that some models have to remove internal modem or set
  input/output devices to ttyb since int modem usurps ttya.

mention important changes, such as ELF, binary compatability, newly
  supported models that don't require kernel patches, and that the install
  procedure described now works for all models (i.e. Open Firmware 3
  machines with only one hard drive).
