What PReP bootloaders exist? When I was using my 7248 in the

Alternatively you could boot from a PReP partition (type 41) with a
kernel dd'ed to it.
I remember once thinking that implementing a yaboot- or grub-like
bootloader for PReP might be a fun/interesting project, but the
userbase is a bit limited and the box is a bit wimpy...
Anyway, if you know of a bootloader for PReP I'd like to hear about it.
I imagine that you might could implement a kexec-based loader nowadays
as an alternative. Well, I'm rambling...
I did have yaboot working on my 43p-140 before I tried to update its
firmware and turned it into a brick.
