Here's a related question; ie ethernet support. Has anyone had any luck
YDL to use the Apple gigabit ethernet card at a gigabit?

Hi Randall,

Hmm, that's unfortunate. I was going to put this machine in a server
so operator intervention on this machine is pretty difficult and
infrequent. Does anybody know if YDL 2.0 improves ethernet support, or if
there's another distro that supports the 7200's built-in ethernet?
