Body: Looked through powermac audio driver trying to figure out why it's not working on the mini. It's reported as an AOAKeylargo like the ibooks seem to have, but it bombs out in the tumbler init code. Seems I need access to the Darwin driver, hopefully someone more familiar will get to it first.

Body: Tried to catch up on bloglines, I was several days behind after my recent vacation. Worked on setting up a linux-ha cluster with Sean, gave up after net was sucking too bad to install packages in any reasonable amount of time. Talked with Mike about his multiboot setup on his Mac Powerbook G3. Didn't finish reading through bloglines -- didn't even get to Boing Boing and slashdot.
