So I guess running a Mach kernel based diagnostic package is less stable. Although that CD I mentioned can run in open firmware mode without an OS. Simpler interface and less tests, but it might be more stable.
I'd assume the CD he ran can be run the same way.
As far as I know it's the other way around - the OF mode offers more than the OS one. And the correct ASD for PowerMac G5 AGP is 2.5.8.
