After much tinkering, I finally got CVS working with SourceForge.
Still tinkering with yaboot. In the interest of having something that actually works, I'm trying again to get BootX to function properly. I'm not sanguine about my prospects though, considering the difficulties some people have had with BootX and OS 9.
Important tip to you B&W G3 owners trying to install
If you have a SCSI CD in addition to the IDE device that comes with the unit, the installer may not handle the setup of your /etc/fstab properly. I saw this with an old CD-R attached to mine.
Hardness value of Si3N4 too high by a factor of 4. I think its a data analysis issue, not a code issue. (whew)
