The thing is that I was unable to boot. It hangs at the start at :
	smp_core99_kick_cpu done

Maybe was it a misconfiguration in the OpenFirmware :
when I list the value of the vars in OF, i've got two vars :
	betty_cpu0 passed
	betty_cpu1 ......
Oops, I can't log today on the computer, I don't remember the second
value :-( which was different from the first.
I test it on 2 G4 with exactly the same hardware configuration.

By the way, MacOS 9.2 was highly unstable : it often hangs on netscape.
