Indeed, we too have used the R4 release(kernel 2.0.30) with our Nobis
based IBM
PowerPC's.  The only problem we ever had was with the new kernels, which
at the time that we had a spare moment to try them, there were problems
with the BATs if I remember correctly (Cort, remember us from University
of Arkansas and the ****ed 601 we had?).   We haven't had time to try
recent releases of the kernel.
