I also am having trouble installing using BootX. I've been unable to
install on my PowerBook G3 Series (Wallstreet). I have tried various
locations for the files, including those specified above (from the BootX
docs). I get the following:

[various and sundry start-up messages snipped]
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at found a block 0
ADB keyboard at 2, handler 1
Detected ADB keyboard, type ANSI.
input1: ADB HID on ID 2:2.c3

EXT2-fs error (device ramdisk(1,0)): ext2 check page: bad entry in

init-2.05a#


While the EXT2-fs errors concern me, I long since learned to start with
the first error message, so the "crc error" wedged in the middle has my
concern now. I am able to uncompress the initrd.img file on my Intel
gentoo linux box using gunzip. I have the ramdisk size textbox in BootX
set to 34000. I have been able to install SuSE linux on this box, using BootX.

I would appreciate any ideas on what to try next.
