1. LinuxPPC on RS/6000 43P-100 (7248) Another one Working !!

I know it's not a new thing, but
I'm pleased to add my WS to the list of
IBM RS/6000 43P running LinuxPPC-1999 !

My 43P :
 7248-100
   Integrated PCI Ethernet - PCnet/PCI
   Integrated VGA
   Integrated SCSI controller - NCR 53c810 rev 1
   Integrated Sound
 64Mb Ram
 2 x 2.0Gb SCSI disks
 4.0 Gb External SCSI disk
 PS/2 3 button Mouse

I digged and asked around for floppy boot images, but I had to wait for a
working set, which appeared on the LinuxPPC site just a few weeks ago.
ftp://ftp.linuxppc.org/linuxppc-1999/install/PREP-CHRP-BeBox/
         PREP.install.floppy
         PREP.install.image

Then following some install instructions I managed to have it running.

  http://www.linuxppc.com/updates/r5-prep-install.shtml
  http://www.digital-wisdom.com/rs6000.html
  http://ppc.linux.or.jp/~aoshimak/install.html

Sound and X11 still don't work, but I hope someone is working on them.

I will publish the full story later on my site ...

Thanks to anyone who helped me during these months !!
