Tried an install on my Powerbook G4 (PowerBook5,4). The setup script
worked right up until it was time to start the bootloader. The script
choked on the attempt to install the bootloader. Judging by the VC5
output, the problem was that mkofboot was asking for y/N confirmation on
formatting the bootstrap partition, and the script wasn't delivering.

Quickinst worked like a charm, as always.

	Setup FTP... failed on installing bootloader (mkofboot/yaboot.)
	QuickInst FTP... worked for me.
