Ok, I've got a Powerbook G3 "wallstreet" and i'm trying to install 2004.0 on it using the minimal CD. If I pass root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc cdroot I can get to a prompt, but PROC isn't mounted, among other things. If I don't pass root=/dev/ram0 I get a kernal panic about not being able to mount the root FS on hda9. Any ideas or anything I missed or should be doing?

You _are_ using the BootX app that allows oldworld macs to boot linux, right?

OK. This is all from distant memory, but in bootX's preferences, you have 'ramdisk' checked, at least 10000KB block size inputted, no kernel args (except maybe video=atyfb,vmode:14,cmode:24,mclk:72, and the kernel copied to your System folder selected as the vmlinux ? I believe in the main Bootx window, there is an "Options" button or similar that you click to reveal a second pane of preferences. Most of the options needed to boot linux from an install disk are in this window.
