Just installed my Yellow Dog Linux that I got at the E3 convention onto
my G3 Blue and White (nice folks handing out the CDs too), and besides a
few errors with setting up things like the mouse, network, printer, etc,
now when I try to boot to the partition it gives me an error:

Warning: Unable to open initial console.

Any ideas why? Or maybe even why I can't seem to do the setups? For
config info, I have a G3 B&W, 300MHz, 6Gig ATA, USB keyboard and mouse,
Apple Studio Display 17", DHCP network, 64MB RAM. I also have the
second to latest firmware (not the latest that came out a week or so

Thanks for any info!
