My PowerMac 8600 with a g4 upgrade card (sonnet ppcg4-400-kit), does not boot properly with the livecd.
When choosing Linux in bootx, the screens shows the usual splash with kernel version and some other cryptic info, but then goes black with blue stripes. I have tried "video=controlfb" in the kernel arguments with no success. I also tried to check the "No video driver" option, which just gives me the penguin in the corner and nothing more.

Anyone managed to get things working on the 8600?

Solved!
The solution was the 2004.1 livecd.
