Hello Fritz,
You can check email from end of march, with subject "Re: [lubuntu-
users] Is there a difference in radeon boot params for PPC" and
sentence which began "My yaboot.conf have included parameters". Do you
still use grub on your installation as you had mentioned one year ago?
Just to clarify how to adapt configuration.
PS: MAC OS X 10.5 had minimal requirements PowerPC G4 CPU with 512 MB
of RAM. How did you get started on your 15 years old G3?  You are not
kidding, right?
