Speaking of OpenPIC....  I tried to build a kernel from BK TOT last night
for a PowerMac G4, and it hung about a half screen into booting after some
yammering about OpenPIC.

openpic enter
openpic timer
openpic ext

Is there a 2.4 kernel source tarball around that is known to boot on
Sawtooth (using BootX)?  Is there a way to yank the OpenPIC support?
