Can yaboot delay for kernel choice?

Thanks. It did. I changed it to 300 so that I could count 30 seconds
and verify that it took the right amount of time, which it did.

Off topic - I wonder if anyone on this list knows of a good forum for
asking Linux kernel configuration questions for the PowerPC? I was
surprised to find that the Gentoo PowerPC list has so few messages
that my messages from last January and this May all ended up on the
same page of the archives. So few people use this anymore - I just
found an interesting potential use for this old Mac mini and started
setting it up but don't know of a good place to ask other PPC users
kernel questions.
