Hey maybe we will get the b/w g-3's (yMacs) running yet..

Macos X Server doesnt have any sleep code.. it wasnt written for that..
you also wont see _much_ USB (keyboard and mouse) support and it is still
lacking Firewire support from everything i have read.

Powerbooks arent supported at all..
Which makes me wonder why... Apple was giving major discounts to developers
on those things. unless they just wanted to give out information and
support linuxppc..
