is there a reason that there are no G3 kernels on the 2004.0 PPC livecds? i've tried the minimal and universal iso's, checked md5sums and mounted each iso (as a loopback device) and checked /boot on the iso.... there is no G3 kernel... i haven't tried booting from the universal image, but on the minimal image it lists that there are six available kernels (IIRC), G3, G4, G5, and each of the above in SMP, but there are no G3* images in /boot...

i'm doubtful a G4 or G5 kernel would work for my clamshell ibook, is there no way for me to do a stage 1 install with a G3?

It is the G4 kernel. I know yaboo.conf maps the G3 option to a G3 kernel, which does not exist. Just type in G4 at the boot prompt and you should be fine.

edit: I do this every-time I boot using the 2004.0 universal cd, seems to work without any problems.

I had previously asked this question here. Though pvdabeel's answer is not completely correct, the important thing he tells us is that we can use the G4 kernel without any hesitation.
