I have a Motorola PowerStack "Series E" PReP machine.
I can boot the zImage.prep from a "PPC PReP Boot" partition (type 41) having
written it to that partition using the dd command.
The PPCBug firmware has also the following options. I have only tested
booting from floppy.
- boot zImage from floppy disk, CD or tape (also directly written to it)
- network boot (tftp)
