I know Paul did an install on his iMac and was successful

So, I did one today on the iBook G3. X detection from anaconda wasn't
appropriate (first time this has happened, incidentally); relevant
bugzilla filed (radeon 7500 not being configured well).

Autopartitioning is still something that needs to be fixed. Manual disk
druid partitioning works

There is an /etc/yaboot.conf with the appropriate initrd line available.
However, the drive isn't blessed (so running /sbin/mkofboot, and then
saying Y will allow you to get fedora booting - in the instructions,
this is stated to be /sbin/yabootconfig ...)

X, for the Radeon 7500 actually comes up, using fbdev, at 640x480. Its
ugly :P

rhgb works.

SELinux brought up a system that was rather weird - ping, scp,
traceroute wouldn't work (error while loading shared libraries: cannot
restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied). Bringing it up
with selinux=0 solved that for me quickly.

APM is still installed by default. Why is apmd.spec showing:
	ExclusiveArch: %{ix86} ppc

Do we really want apmd running on PPC? I'd have figured pmud/pbbuttonsd
(i'm vouching for the former) would be a better bet. Incidentally, David
Woodhouse should be posting (or has already posted) for pmud's inclusion
into Extras
