This is exactly the question I had now, so it seems we all have to
update the os-chooser script and add PowerBook3,1 to it.

I will update the suseboot.hqx today, it includes more funny AppleScript
files for automate the setup process. SCSI Booting is still an issue,
the only way is to boot directly into yaboot. It works here on many
differnt machines.
Why should ELF loading not work?

boot hd:9,\\yaboot in the os-chooser script should be the same like
hd:9,\\yaboot in boot-device for the OF.

Yes, there is macboot on newer machine, I had no problems so far.
