The default boot crashes out immediately with what looks like a core
dump (though I'm not a developer, just the SA).

The safe-boot option gives many errors mostly to do with SCSI and
IDE drive and adapter detection. Once the Gentoo keyboard-type
prompt comes up, the physical keyboard (USB) doesn't respond at all.

Any ideas? Do any of the PPC kernel developers live in London and
want to come and have a play?
