    You might try our latest kernels.
    There was some success in getting Vimage Vpower G3 and
    NuPowr upgrades to run.

    Good luck

    Nope. So far I haven't been able to get it to work with the
    stubborn Sonnets.

    When using a ramdisk, installation of Debian Sarge dies
    right before going into the installer, at the step after
    "adb: probing finished". When trying with the kernel and
    pointing it at the CD's init, I get "Kernel panic: No init
    found. Try passing init= option to kernel."

    If only Apple made the source-code for the MkLinux booter
    available for everyone, then maybe willing
    programmers/hackers could get the SONNET nubus upgrade card
    -and- extension/driver working along side the MkLinux booter
    (and/or the BootX stuff).

    Or better yet, make a Linux-side driver for the Sonnet
    Crescendo upgrade... you know, so it'll be like this:

    1) Boot the Mac
    2) MkLinux Booter loads
    3) your Linux distro loads
    4) Sonnet Crescendo driver (nubus) loads
    5) HOO-HAH!!

    (just an idea)
