Depending on the time and day of course, the linuxppc-2.5 tree is
generally left in a buildable state, at least for some target or
another. IMHO, it is still easiest to NFS root a 2.5 box than to worry
about IDE / SCSI being perfectly sane. That said, IDE / SCSI have been
rather sane for a while now, so the chances are low of you kicking
yourself for not having done a backup recently..
