The PPC section doesn't seem to be maintained anymore. I haven't heard from 
Michael Peters who started the PPC section for a long time. So all the 
updates I make are only in the Intel section because I can verify those. I 
could add the above if you tell me where you think the best place to put 
them. I'd imagine right after we execute the MAKEDEV script?
