I almost succeeded installing Gentoo 2004.0 on my Dual G5 1.8 GHz. Almost. When I used yabootconfig I got the following error messages:

mkofboot: Finding OF device path /dev/sda2
ofpath: Driver: sata_svw is not supported
mkofboot: Unable to find OF path to boot=/dev/sda2
mkofboot: Please add ofboot=<path> where <path> is the OF path to /dev/sda2

My bootstrap partition is located at /dev/sda2. But why is SATA not supported??? It should be supported on the G5, shouldn't it?
