    Good idea jPV!
    I started to copy all the descriptions of your shell commands to Locale:Help/.
    My script would then first look if there is a localized description of the command, if not the english version is taken.

    I just read through the network drive article. Its fantastic! Great work on that one. We need an easier way to discover and contribute to these.

    Great work, very much appreciated. That took a lot of your time, so even if not everyone here expresses their thanks, know that your time and work are appreciated by more people than post in this thread.

    But i need Lua, too.
    It's similar in many things and Hollywood is based on it, but Hollywood is noz Lua and Lua is not Hollywood. They differ and they both have their advantages and disadvantages. It's pretty nice to have them both.

    Many thanks, especially for the OpenFirmware part! From time to time I have to fiddle around with that and needed to search for the relevant information bits every time, 'cause I keep forgetting this OF stuff again and again... So good to know the relevant information is now at one place! :-)

    Besides, on the Filesystem page you got two little errors I think. For SFS and FFS max. filesize should read "2 TiB" instead of "2 bytes" I guess.

    It's neither. Correct is 2 GiB minus 2 bytes and 4 GiB minus 2 bytes, and that's what's written on the page :-)

    @JPV,

    My pegasos 2 is 14 1/5 years old, it is steel working. But that is not the case of my powermac g5 2x 2 ghz. I got problems with memory sticks, supposedly not working, after 6 months of use. Now I want to sell it, in france if possibole, complete or by parts, otherwise it will finish to recycling.

    I have read your tutorial about open firmware. It is very intersting. But why do not you speak about pegasos 1 and 2, and also about efika, except at the very beginning ? They also have open firmware system, but it is different to the firmware of macs powerpc. Please, do not forget these bplan computers. A friend, owner of a pegasos 2 revision 2b6, asked me if it is possible to boot morphos iso by usb. I do not know the answer. I asked the same question to daff, from obligement, but he too has not the answer. Have you, JPV, the answer to this very particular question, please ?

    The main reason why I didn't write more about bPlan machines is that I can't test the stuff myself properly, and I want to double check and test everything I write about. I have Pegasos 1 but no other bPlan machines, so I might do some tests on it, but AFAIK it has some differences to the Pegasos 2 firmware, and I have absolutely no idea about Efika.

    I also had some motivation/time problems to finish the Mac part, and I didn't want to delay the release even more by starting to learn the Pegasos firmware, which I don't know that well beforehand. I already left something out from my original plan too (Forth bootmenus etc).

    I guess the article can be extended later with Pegasos sections etc, and anyone can do it. So someone else with Pegasos 2 could very well do that, it's a wiki page and meant for group efforts, so please go ahead :)

    And another reason is that there's already some documentation about Pegasos firmware usage, for example, in Docs/PegasosFirmware.txt on your MorphOS installation. Mac related information was more scattered everywhere, and not even that good pages were found for OSX users either.

    I've never owned Pegasos 2 and I don't remember seeing instructions for USB booting on Pegs, so I don't know either. My guess is that Pegasos firmware doesn't support USB disks, but it's just a guess. But I guess the last example in my tutorial would work on Pegs too, it's not "pure" USB booting, but if you can load the boot.img from some other device (partition on HD, CD-ROM...) then you can load the actual ISO from USB.

    Pegasos Firmware does'nt support USB-boot!
    There is no device-alias or direct path shown. You have to boot boot.img from HD or CD. The rest can boot from USB.
    If anyone knows the exact hardwareaddress and syntax it may be possible to write a forth-program (which can be stored in NV-RAM) to boot from USB.

    In fact, there is even a FreeScale/NXP document describing the Pegasos Firmware:
