Last summer, I concluded that I could never install any fedora version later than 9 on my
IBM B50 (yes, I know, it's nothing but a 32bit, heavy, dust-gathering attic-heating
door-stopper), because its firmware was unable to load any kernel+initrd larger than 16MB.
No that Fedora for ppc is being blown life into again, It would be awsome to install later
I could of course, do a yum upgrade. I would probably be able to solve most problems that
could arise manually.
But, then I thought, what about booting into anaconda via kexec? Wouldn't that work?
Given a boot CD in the tray, what boot arguments should I feed the kexec kernel with to be
able to run the installer?
