Leopard just kernel panics on my 2000-vintage 500MHz G4, and ISTR the kernel
panic implying that it was using instructions not supported on that CPU. It
runs Tiger fine.

I've also got a Umax S910 kicking around and I've yet to find any version of
OSX that'll boot on it. I might wave BeOS at that for a laugh.
