	I would appreciate it if the members of the list
would answer the following issue in detail, because
I'm intending to organize all Powerbook documentation
for www.linuxppc.org.  Thanks!

	I second that question, from a slightly different
angle.  I have been collecting the kernel source from
mirrors of the official kernel.org.  I get mine from
the SunSITE mirror on ftp.cdrom.com.  When I do either
'make menuconfig' or 'make xconfig', I notice that
under the "console" section, there are two entries for
"ATI Mach 64".  They are both identical, they're both
selected, and I cannot change their selections!
	This has been true with kernel versions 2.2.10,
2.2.12, 2.2.13, and 2.3.22.
	I have a Powerbook G3 Wallstreet series (May 1998)
and all development environment is from my stock
LinuxPPC R5 (not Q3) distribution.  Is it imperative
for me to upgrade to Q3?  I can do that.
	Thank you!
