sorry for the cross-post...
i was able to boot OS X by typing "boot hd:7,\\:tbxd" or something similar (can't remember exactly) in open firmware
it boots terribly slow - stays at the first grey screen with the apple logo and the spinning thing on the bottom for a looong time
os x loads ok, but when i connect my external firewire HD and iPod they doesn't appear in Finder or iTunes (or Diskwarrior/the apple disk utility)
when i think about it, that happened just before the machine suddenly
decided to start up in OS 9.
the FW devices and cables are all good. the iPod also gets charged.
i haven't tried a restart yet to see if it boots OS X or OS 9.
what's happening? how can i make FW work?
