Hi I'm trying to install the ppc-minimalist-2005.1 and my lan hardware is not showing up.

DHCP or static assign via net-setup won't work because it doesn't seem to recognize anyhardware.
I have a linksys router and it should easily have assigned an address.

I tried modprobe tulip and no eth0.

Anybody know what module I should use for this iMac.

Thanks in advance.

I'm getting a similar thing here - it even shows eth0 up, but it just won't talk. DHCP fails, and even with manual config it won't ping other machines.

Ah!

Ok, it seems that 2005.1 ppc64 install CD doesn't work on an iMac G5 when plugged into a Gigabit switch. I (fortunately) had a 10/100 switch in the closet, which I connected to my gig switch, and then plugged the iMac into the 10/100 and now it works.

Hopefully the latest kernel will fix that.
