Well. 4.1 ships w/ BootX (and a recent kernel then, yes? 2.1.125?). Goto
http://cvs.on.openprojects.net (I think that's it) and see howto checkout
the kernel source there. It's the most current for ppc.

Not needed.. R5 is nice tho <g>.
There are a few "problem" right now. The current USB dev is being done on
Linus' USB stack. OHCI (what's in most non-intel chipset based computers)
doesn't work. OHCI is the main controller. There is some hope tho.
linux-usb at suse.com is the current list.
http://soap.suitenine.com/usb/ has the current USB-ohci work and links to
the other OHCI driver for Linus' stack (merging soon).
