apple kernel ?  that would be darwin.  i think you mean linux kernel ?

i dont append any kernel options.  you want open firmware framebuffer  
and radeonfb or nvidiafb compiled in the kernel.   not sure if  
enabling the edid or ddc options will help.  i dont have a mac mini,  
just 2 ibook g4's, not sure how different they are.

there is also #gentoo-powerpc on freenode too :)
