["BootLoader"] > Quik


Bootloader for PowerMac or CHRP systems

The quik package provides the functionality necessary for booting a Linux Debian/["PowerPC"] PowerMac or CHRP system from disk. It includes first and second stage disk bootstrap and a program for installing the first stage bootstrap on the root disk.

Note that if you are running on a NewWorld machine, quik will be of limited use to you. You should install ["YaBoot"] instead. It may even come handy on an OldWorld machine, since it provides the ofpath program and some documentation.
