[K12OSN] PPC iMAC k12linux from Fedora10


I have a fully updated k12llinux F10.  My thin client i386 machines are working flawlessly.  Easy.  I followed the instructions to get PPC computers to boot. which included editing '/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX' to add BRIDGE=ltspbr0.

I also followed this guide: (https://fedorahosted.org/k12linux/wiki/PPCClientHOWTO) and downloaded "ppc-client-chroot-f10-20090109.tar.bz2." It said to "tar xfvj /tmp/ppc-date.tar.bz2", but that didn't do anything.  So I "tar xfvj /tmp/ppc-client-chroot-f10-20090109.tar.bz2"

However, when I am on my old iMac indigo and hold down the "n" key during boot, it just takes me to the yaboot manager with options to boot to hard disc or cdrom.

I have tried "enet::, but it says "Pleas wait, loading kernel... Can't read Elf e_ident/e_type/emachine info."

I don't get the emachine info, since this is an imac indigo. Any ideas on how I can get this to boot? Am I putting in the wrong command?  Is there a file I need to edit?  I am really frustrated but need to get thisto work because of budgeting. We have 10+ unused labs of iMacss that we can't replace because of budget.

Thank you.

Note: I am windows and network savvy, but I know nothing of MACS and little of GNU/Linux.
