For what's it's worth I'll dig up a couple of these machines and see if any
light can be shed on this.  There have been a few problmes with netbooting
"large" (>12Mb) kernels on ppc64.  It seems reasonable that the same problems
could be affecting older machines.

One thing you may like to try is moving open-formware

Then try the netboot.

But you're right at least a few of the problems are firmware bugs.
