I suggest you try the miBoot program written by the BootX author. It is a
bootloader for older Macs that does not require MacOS. You can get it as
part of the brand new BootX 1.2 package available at:

I have a Power Mac 7300/200, debian installed, and X 3.3.6.
I'm using the FBDev xserver, as indicated.
The monitor settings are:
I have not changed the modelines yet from the defaults there in
One: my ADB mouse does not work. dmesg says that it got detected,
though. I've tried the tips on a website or two, to no avail.
Two: it looks like the screen, when I do startx, shows up as a 640
width, but it seems to be only the top 1/4 of the screen. the debian
background is stretched across this screen (virtual?) and of course,
since the mouse does not work, I have to ctrl-cmd-F1 to get out.
are my monitor settings incorrect? Special modelines to use? anyone
using this combo successfully? any ideas?
