The machfb is broken in the macppc port.You have to disable it before you can 
boot into NetBSD.You will get a garbled up screen if you don't. This has only 
been tested on an Apple Imac G3 333mhz version.
Try to boot netbsd without disabling machfb.
Boot into open firmware and add the -c to the boot command like this:
boot cd:,ofwboot.xcf hd:3,/netbsd -c
type disable machfb
then type quit. Then the system should boot up, but with no framebuffer.
