I'm trying to install Gentoo 2005.0 using Universal Install CD on a PowerMac G4 (with Sonnet processor upgrade).
It starts booting, then halts being unable to find pdc202xx_new. I assume the probing is smart enough to
determine that it needs this driver, but the driver is not on the disk. Now what?

(I'm really not a Mac guy, but if I'm going to take this snappy machine from a friend, I want it to run Linux,
not OSX.)

Okay, I found out (while trying Debian) what the problem was...

There is a high-speed ATA card with a PDC20286 in the box with nothing connected to it. Once I remove it, there is no further problem with the pdc202xx_new stuff. Although sometime I'm going to want to put it back in...
