I'm having a small problem wit h SetPRAMBoot. This is most likely an error on my
part (doh!). I used it to set the boot PRAM so I could boot back to macos. The
values I used were 2 0 0 9. I'm thinking this is /dev/hda9. Is this incorrect?
Anyways, I tried to use the zap-PRAM keys to reset the thing, but it doesn't
recognize that I'm holding them down, and just boots directly back to linux.
Tried to boot from a cd, computer ignores that I'm holding C down. System is a
Pismo Powerbook, Linux PPC 2000, with Ben's 2.2.15-pre14 kernel. Any ideas?
