Hi all,

I am currently working on the Hurdppc project
(http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/hurdppc). One step of the project
is to port the OSKit to the powerpc architecture. The port is most
done now. Then we will adapt osfmach to use the OSKit. It includes the
boot support.

So i am going to extend the multiboot standard taking care about ppc
specifics. Once we get multiboot images, would be great to use GRUB to
load our multiboot Mach kernel. So i assume to port GRUB to ppc is
necessary. I am very interested on your comments about:

- The multiboot standard for ppc... ¿What would be the better way to
  extend it? ¿Should all the standard to be reorganized in order to
  support more than one architecture?... 

- A GRUB ppc port... ¿some other port has beed done? ¿What parts of
  the bootloader are affected? ...

PD: I am now to this mailing list. Hello all :)
