"...I'm pleased to announce the Embedded PowerPC Linux Boot
Project at ppcboot.sourceforge.net. With support from Wolfgang
Denk, we can offAer a flexible way to boot embedded PowerPC based
devices using Linux. We are also looking for sponsors to support
our development team in the future!"
"The Embedded PowerPC Linux Boot Project (PPCBOOT) intends to
implement a common and easily extensible boot program for embedded
devices. The entire project source code is released under the GNU
General Public License (GPL), and takes advantage of an open
development process at SourceForge.net, the highly popular portal
of open source software development."
"In the embedded world, it is very important to provide a
flexible way of configuring the system environment. Accordingly,
one of the project's primary goals is to achieve a very flexible
way of configuring PPCBOOT. Developers must be able to decide which
components are really needed within the actual target system."
