I'm looking for anyone who has a Motorola, or other machine with PPCBUG
firmware to test boot the following kernel and send the complete output to me.
I am hoping to improve support for these machines, and if your machine can boot
the image and produces viable output, it should be supportable under

I am especially interested in any MVME160x machines, or MPC82xx machines.  I
also suspect that the image will work on a Motorola Powerstack II with ppcbug. 

This image will not work on boards with DINK32 or OpenFirmWorks (unless they
also have PPCBUG, in which case you need to boot the image from PPCBUG)

The image is a complete netboot image, kernel and all in one file.  You should
be able to netboot it directly.  I use the following line in /etc/bootptab to
netboot these images:


(just place the image in /tftpboot/boot.fs, and enable bootpd and tftpd in
