Booting from CD fails for 0x100100 kernels, such as the 8.0-current
snapshot, and works for 0x13d3c0 kernels like the 7.1_BETA snapshot.
Booting kernels from hard disk (both with a loader in an HFS partition
in hard disk or with the loader from the CD) also fails for
8.0-current kernels with the 0x1001000 address and works for kernels
with a 0x13d3c0 address, either 7.1 or 8.0-current compiled with
revision 1.7 of the "ldscript.powerpc" file .
Oddly enough, I tried booting the same 8.0-current snapshot CD on a
PowerMac G4 "Sawtooth" (PowerMac3,1) and it boots fine there -- no
errors, as does the 7.1-beta CD...
