I have put a precompiled 2.2.10 powermac kernel on
and on (accessible only from within Australia).  This
kernel works on the iMac and should work on the blue&white G3
powermac, although I haven't been able to test it directly myself.

The source for this kernel is available as a .tar.gz file on the two
ftp servers or by anonymous rsync from  (My current 2.3.6 tree is
available by anon rsync at

*NOTE:* This kernel includes Linus' USB stack, which (in my version)
translates the USB keycodes to ADB keycodes.  If you have an iMac, or
a B&W G3 with a USB keyboard, comment out (or change) the KEYTABLE
definition in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard so that your init scripts don't
load a USB keymap.

The relevant files are in or  They are:
