    PPC platform documentation

    I'm looking for documentation about the PPC platform. Mainly about the hardware; the boot process, memory management etc. I have found quite a few documents on the net, but they all assume you're using a x86 PC. Can anyone point me to a (detailed) document (google doesn't come up with anything valuable)?

    I don't have experience with PPC, but if you try google "ppc +linux", you may find some help. The information is obviously geared towards linux, but it may be helpful for your own project.

    Hmhm.. yeah. I tried that, but I ended up with a bunch of links for various Linux distros for the PPC platform. I'll look a bit further, perhaps I'll find something useful.
