LiveCD not recognising latest PPC Powerbooks

I've got one of the last PPC Powerbooks and recently put on CLFS.
However, these latestes Powerbooks use different IDE controllers,
which aren't recognised by the current LiveCD PPC isos.
They're also not recognised by most other PPC Linux distros,
except for the latest.

The reason is that the new IDE controller drivers is only available
in the newer kernels, >=2.6.15.

I can't get the name off the top of my head, but the new driver
can be found at the end of the IDE chipsets list in the IDE driver
section of the kernel config while using "make menuconfig".

It's called something PMAC and the description will say that it's
for some newer Macs.

Hope this helps.
