Boot PowerPC Macs via USB 2.0 drives
Authored by: kL on Mar 07, '06 01:24:18PM
Why set nvram variable? I've had open-firmware based Pegasos PPC and it simply had boot command, so instead of:

setenv boot-device ud:3,\:tbxi

should be enough to write:

boot ud:3,\:tbxi

Yes! That's sufficient. Except that I have to enter 2 instead of one backslash to get this to work.
