Ah thank you for that info.  I only said what I said because the 
4xxFP installation set things up to use the arch/ppc and to my 
delight, it worked!  I look forward to and will do all I can to help 
get the arch/powerpc platform working on my Sequoia spin-off board.

I sent you email regarding my inability to do a ELDK build from 
scratch, did you get that? I'm trying to build it under a fully 
updated Fedora 7 system, and it hits the error:
   LD unable to locate -lssabi_krb5 .  Any clue?

thanks so much for your help,
