Well I've got MkLinux running on my 6100/Newer210, and it's definitely
running on the G3 processor. The message at the top of the screen says:

MkLinux for Power Macintosh. Brought to you by Apple Computer, Inc.
Developer Release 3 (Linux 2.0.33-osfmach3 on a PowerPC 750 (Arthur))

1. Newer G3 card /w 6100 & MkLinux

Dear all,

I remember somebody told me here that you can use the Newer G3 card on
PowerMac 6100 with MkLinux pre-R1.

I searched through the www.mklinux.org and www.newertech.com websites but
can't find such information.

Can anybody please let me know how you do it?

Best regards,

Eric Yung
