Short progress report.

As you know there is no HD in place but that's ok, I can create a bootable
floppy with a minimal system on a powerbook G3 or even my other 2400

Some interesting things:
1) Attached keyboard
2) When attaching display cables, 2 of which socket right to the MLB, a
third has a hole and I believe it is ground. I had to fasten it down with
tape until I can source a screw for it.
4) SDRAM back in the slot.
3) I held down the reset key when powering up and got a steady green light
at the top.

TO DO:
I will continue trying resets
Note: PRAM battery remains disconnected.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Was completely dead whereas now I have a steady green light (is this GLOD?)

Alex
