I installed the most current version of linuxppc a few weeks ago on a
7300/200. BootX 1.0b6 would just freeze with macos on the screen when I
would try to boot from a scsi device. I did install quik during the
install. it does work if i have the floppy in and pass root= and noinitrd.

When they took the Fourth Amendment, I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs.
When they took the Sixth Amendment, I was quiet because I was innocent.
When they took the Second Amendment, I was quiet because I didn't own a gun.
Now they've taken the First Amendment and I can't say anything.
