We  have  PPCBoot   (see   the   CVS   server   at   SourceForge   or  booting  on  many,  many  MPC8xx (and
MPC82xx and IBM 40x) systems, but this has never been needed  to  get
Linux  running  (not with any kernel from the 2.2.13, 2.2.14 or 2.4.x

A student of  probability  soon  realizes  that  by  its  nature  the
billion-to-one  chance  crops  up nine times out of ten, and that the
greatest odds boil down to a double-sided statement: it will  happen,
or it will not.         - Terry Pratchett, _The Dark Side of the Sun_
