a few weeks ago i bought yellowdowlinux championserver 1.0
i tried to set the system up, put it won't boot.
as described in the pdf-manual i installed a clean macos on an other partition,
then i installed bootx (1.1.3) and i copied the vmlinux and
ramdisk.image.gz into the systemfolder.
after rebooting my system with ydl-cd in cd-rom the startup-screen of
bootx appeared, i choose linux
the screens gets black with the message
"linux booting"
put nothing happens.

what did i wrong ?

ps: i work with linux on pcs since 4 years (suse-linux) so i thought
i can handle this installation on the same easy way. ?!?

thanx for help in advance,
