i used the kernel shipped with ydl 1.0, 2.2 (ydl-manual, i think 2.2.6).
this doesn't work.
then i downloaded the update for cd-install,
ftp://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/yellowdog/updates/champion-1.0/instal
l/updcd_ramdisk.image.gz
this also doesn't work.

i use my usb-keyboard, shipped with my mac.
i hope there is no adb-keyboard necessary.

mike
