Why do you think it would work, Tom?  You can't OF boot the "Wallstreet"
G3 laptops, can you?

The 2 lbs lighter PBs?  If they're just a bit lighter/faster (nothing
new, right?) it should.  Again, if they haven't changed much then yes,
can OF boot it I think.  Otherwise a small (100mb or less?) MacOS
is needed for BootX.
