I tried again today, and the vmlinux-2.2.10-rev1.gz booted on my RevD iMac.
The 2.2.6 wouldn't, and the anything prior to the recent Oct. 30 build
wouldn't either.  I used 2.2.10 to install Linux/PPC, you just don't have
any backspace/delete/kill keys, so be careful typing :-).

Thank you very much!  Now, if I could just get the video driver to
leave the monitor enabled, it would be great.  FYI, video=fbonly (check
the No Video box) works, but any other video option turns off the monitor.
