Thanks,Taketoshi. I'll find OpenJade.
My project, documenting installing and setting-up LinuxPPC just got
pushed back because of the untimely death of BootX. I broke for me
when I upgraded to MacOS 9.0.4 (from) 9.0 so I downgraded and went
looking for a newer BootX version only to discover that development
has been abandoned because BootX was so closely tied to MacOS that it
is hard to maintain. This led me to study alternatives and I'm
finally back on line but not before wiping out both Linux and MacOS.
It's exhilarating to face a computer with nothing but a freshly
initialized hard drive. It opens up possibilities. Where do you want
to go today?
For the curious, I discovered that all the PCI bus Macs can boot
directly into Open Firmware (OF). From there the user can issue
commands to boot any OS on any partition. Better yet, if you know any
FORTH, you can type in a little program and store it in nonvolatile
RAM. Then you can set a flag to execute the program rather than the
standard boot sequence. This is way cool because now I have a menu
that transfers control either to the Mac ROMs or yaboot, a Linux
kernel loader. yaboot reads a configuration file so I can customize
stuff like video driver setting and whether to boot in single user
mode just by editing a file under MacOS. Even better, yaboot supports
a list of options indexed with keywords so I can choose MacOS or
Linux at the OF menu and then choose kernel options at the yaboot
The only thing that keeps this from being a perfect solution is that
some PowerPC machines, thank god not mine, drop into OF with tty0
rather than the keyboard and monitor as cin and cout. I can't see
writing a HOWTO for newbies that starts out by telling them to get
another computer and scanning the the device tree to find their
keyboard and mouse.
