Hi degs,

I can't say for sure (since I don't have PPC), but PPC2002 may require
a little bit of modification on source file.

(Does anyone knows about the differnce between PPC and PPC2002,
as well as new CPU?)

If you can setup eVC for building Python, and make it work for PPC2002,
that would help lots of people.

Please take a look at troubleshooting section of PythonCE wiki, too.
I added a few lines on Startup problems.


If you find the cause of problem, please tell us.
