So, here goes... if this doesn't work, nothing will:
For starters, stop the booting sequence and enter the OF prompt by pressing Ctrl-Alt-O-F *right* after the USB keyboard gets detected.
Now, type exactly that:
Make sure you use the 'MM_Full_silent_USB' configuration, number 5 probably.
You can update those old kickmodules, but *DON'T DO ANYTHING* to the following files (including kernel files):
If you want to do an iso from those files, you can easly use mkisoft by typing:
mkisofs -v -o <filename to be the output> -R -D -iso-level 3 -h -part -mac-name
-hfs-bless <basedir>/l <basedir>
What's more, you can partition the HDD with workbench on the mini, but it needs booting from the CD anyways.
