emerge linux-wlan-ng problem on ppc
I am done installing gentoo now. I had to install Ubuntu on another
partition and install gentoo one step at a time over a couple of weeks.
iBook 366, and can't boot from CDRs.

I figured out how to tell emerge to build linux-wlan-ng against warnings
export ACCEPT_KEYWORDS='~ppc'
Then here is what happens:
trix boot # emerge linux-wlan-ng
Calculating dependencies ...done!

Any ideas?
Ubuntu has linux-wlan-ng in apt, and I actually used my Prism device to
install gentoo on the other partition.

Any help appreciated. I'm almost there!
