1. IBM P.S. 850 PowerPC 604E IDE

Hello, I have curently installed Yellowdog Linux on my IBM RS6000 Model
Power series 850. It seems to work fine but I can't get my Xwindows to
work. I get an error in regards to my mouse and my video. I tryied
Xconfigurator and setup, both with no resaults. I can't get the sound to
work ether.

If anyone has any information on setting up Linux " Any Linux " on this
computer. Please give me any pointers you may have.

I tried to get LinuxPPC 2000 to start on it, but no go. I get past the
first boot disk and it takes my first ram disk but at the end of reading
that one it never asks for the second ram disk. It just stays there and
does nothing.
