|Arg. Long story short, I messed up my reinstall of Gentoo on my Quicksilver G4. Current status is that init breaks on the udev mount (I think I know why), yaboot is set up only with the Linux drive image, and I need to boot the CD in order to fix things. Only problem is, I'm using a Logitech keyboard and have no access to a real mac keyboard at the moment.
Is there any way to force the option-key boot menu or the OF prompt through yaboot, or just dump to the LiveCD? This is what I get for leaving tmpfs out of my kernel...
I tried a bunch of random modifier keys, and got to the option-key boot screen ONCE, but I can't seem to get there again. Any help would be appreciated.
Now with 20% fewer rabid primates.
