Oh Geez I remember MKLinux DR3 on my Beige G3 - BootX I think it was - 
had to have a small HFS partition (couldn't be HFS+) with a blessed 
system folder.

That was my first distro.

I also ran Debian m68k on an SE/30 - that was an experience.

Not knowing who he was, I saw the network driver had been written by a 
college student name Alan Cox and so I sent an e-mail to the listed 
e-mail address to say thank you.
