This guy has a good overview on the OF boot process, a tad high level but
may answer some of the questions you may have (not sun specific)
I recommend checking out the IEEE 1275 Homepage for the openboot
documentation, and the SUN specific bindings:
I know a guy who did a lot of embedded PowerPC design, and he used systems
w. OpenBoot. I assume some of their practices for bootstraping code may
be similar to what you are requesting, mainly loading a program on
power-on, right? W/o an OS to speak of. Am I understanding you correctly?
Basically you have some sort of program and you just wanna load it and
execute it, no need for an OS or multiuser crap, right?
