#Installation notes  
##Install workaround for 3.0 on a Power Macintosh 7300 

If you find you can't boot the 3.0 CD on your machine with [[Open Firmware]] 1.0.5. (This assumes you are familiar with NetBSD in general.)

* download and burn the 1.6.2 [macppccd.iso](ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/1.6.2/macppccd.iso)
* download and burn the 3.0 [macppccd-3.0.iso](ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/3.0/macppccd-3.0.iso)
* follow the 1.6.2 [INSTALL.html](ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-1.6.2/macppc/INSTALL.html) to get to Open Firmware
* fixup the OF environment variables as described in INSTALL.html
* boot the 1.6.2 cd with the *boot scsi-int/sd@3:0* command
* install a minimal system
* reboot into 1.6.2 (*boot scsi-int/sd@0:0*)
* gunzip *macppc/binary/kernel/netbsd-INSTALL.gz* from the 3.0 CD to */netbsd*
* reboot into the 3.0 sysinst
* follow the 3.0 [INSTALL.html](ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-3.0/macppc/INSTALL.html) to finish the install 

For general details see the [macppc](http://www.netbsd.org/ports/macppc) port page on NetBSD.org.
