I was thought about that, and was wondering if I needed to update  
BootX to handle a universal binary, but that doesn't explain why the  
ppc-only kernel doesn't boot, either. I will fiddle more with the  
kextcache stuff after lunch. I built BootX, but am not exactly sure  
what to do with the files it produces.

I was careful to put the kernel back into the wheel group after  
copying it to /, since it seems to get changed to root,admin in the  
copying process. any other gotchas I should look for?
