Any pointers appreciated.
if your iMac is the one before the 'flower power' series, then it is
the same as mine and 7.1 runs well on it. Everyting should install
ok and then you should run sax2 to switch to X 4.0.2.
I have the latest firmware and it is not a problem. In fact, the
creator of ybin, suggested i upgrade to get the new passwordable open
firmware. (this is really only relevant if you decide to go
with ybin/yaboot for booting and not the SUSE default).
