Open Hack'Ware 0.4-pre2 is available for tests here:

It includes all fixes that went into 0.4-pre1, of course. A lot of new
images have been tested and OHW is now able at least to start booting
most of them.
Please consult the README file for more details:

The main known issues are:
- PREP boot is broken (regression)
- kernel boot in memory is broken (regression, at least for PREP).
Those two points will be fixed for 0.4 release.

- Linux 2.6 frame-buffer is buggy. Some of the symptoms are known to
appear on real Macs, some other will have to be fixed.
- Linux 2.6 seem to have some problems with some parts of the hardware
emulation (at least IDE & ADB: seem to be qemu issues)
- NE2k emulation in qemu seems incomplete: most installer will fail if
trying to autoconfigure the network when no dhcp server is found (then,
using tun networking): installers all want to probe ethernet link but
MII seem not to answer properly.

For now, only Debian Sarge and Gentoo are known to be installable.
Please note that top in Debian Sarge is buggy when using recent kernels
(even 2.4) and would crash after 2 refreshes. This seems to be a known
issue due to /proc/stat format changes. This does not happen with Gentoo

Please report any other issue / success.
