i usually use NetBSD/i386 and OpenBSD/i386, therefore it was almost
my first experience to run *BSD/macppc too. so my words may not be
a correct answer...

didn't check that. i should have saved dmesg output.
>2. Are dual booting with OS X?
should work, but i did not choose the option.
i had two choices on installer - one is to share disk with OS X HFS+
partition, another is to basically use the whole disk for OpenBSD.
i picked the latter yesterday.

OpenBSD 3.1 ships with XFree86 4.2.0, as http://www.openbsd.org/31.html
>4. What version of OpenBSD did you install?
OpenBSD 3.1. installation from CD-ROM was totally smooth and wonderful.

no trouble, modulo:
- the console wedge after X11 (as mentioned in the previous posting).
- no way to swap control and caps. "us.swapctrlcaps" mapping for wskbd
did not exist - are there any reason why? i digged the source and
found no keymap definition. maybe i should define one.
- most of special keys (volume control, CD eject) does not seem to work
(i could be wrong, i did not dig those issues further)
