Thanks everyone for you helpful hints.

I have now done a make zImage and built  it so I will try that option

I was also able to boot into Mac OS 9.2 and run DisplayNameRegistry and
dumped it to a file so I should be able to figure out the correct path to
the scsi boot device from that info (I hope).

If not, I will try the idea of putting a small Mac OS boot script on a
scsi partion and try to use the "print-env" boot-device info to figure out
the of boot path.  And then I will try either changing the ofboot.b script
or trying to boot yaboot directly.

I will give all of these things a try tonight and report back.

Thanks again for all of the ideas.
