With the above changes and all the other patches applied, the machine finally 
boots. It is so bloody slow that it takes a long time to do anything, but you 
finally got all the places that needed patches. I really lost track of how many 
bugs were fixed in the process, but I can now put that old box aside until time 
for v5.7.0-rc1. As you can tell, it only gets used to verify that PPC32 is 
working on real G4 hardware. It has no real value for any other function.

Thanks for the help,

Larry
