Going back to the original statement I made when I started this thread
- I had never built a PPC kernel before so instead of creating my own
configuration I simply started with the config file that was used by
the kernel on the install CD. I can always take things out later. All
I was trying to do today was to get the machine to boot and start an
emerge -DuN world, and I did that much anyway.

Will do. The machine is busy for the rest of the evening so that will
be tomorrow. Booting with {none} using the install kernel is the same
problem I'm having booting my kernel so your idea about saving this
data is good. thanks.

No, I'm using VGA. My Mini came with a little unit that screws into
the DVI port and has a 15-pin VGA connector on the outward side to
drive a regular monitor. the monitor worked with OS X on this machine
before I blew OS X away today.

Yeah, I think that's just an oversite on the developer's part. Better
that they make a DVD iso image if they need to make it that big or
else cut out a few packages. I tried to order anything larger than
700MB last night on line and couldn't even find them. No big deal for
now. I'm done and the machine is built. From here out the CD hardly
matters. (I hope!)

Yep.
