I have sent you SEVERAL messages (Tue, 02 Jan 2001; Sat, 06 Jan 2001;
Mon, 08 Jan 2001) telling you (among other things) to  upgrade  to  a
current version of PPCBoot.

If you are ignoring all attempts to help you I will find a better use
for my time instead of answering your questions.

Any cross-compiler that can be used to compile the Linux kernel  will
also be usable to compile PPCboot.

I have explained you these problems several times  before,  and  told
you how to solve the problems.

Your main problem is that you ignore all advice you get.

I tell you one final time: Upgrade PPCBoot. Get 0.7.2  from  the  CVS

All further messages referring to old versions  of  PPCBoot  will  be

and  while  we  are  at  it:  please  move  such  discussion  to  the
ppcboot-users mailing list. And don't use full-quotes.
