PPC Testing . . . .

I've got the same understanding that Anthony has mentioned, and I think I
saw this on the PPC FAQ . . . that USB boot is not supported until
something like > '04 units or so . . . and so after that time it would be
possible and before that it would not be, etc . . . .  In my case both of
my PPC units I believe to be prior to the time, so I burn the iso to CD/DVD
and boot . . . the old-fashioned way . . . .  But, indeed, possibly it
could be booted via FW . . . I don't know the details on getting iso file
to boot that way; my iMac has lost the FW port . . . .
