I had similar problem when installing a Debian on a Bull Estrella (PReP Blackhawk (Powerstack)). There is a problem with a perl script i think. If i remember well, i did a search into installation scripts, and dropped some line. (try grep or vim /=D...).
By the way, i never managed to get the 2.4.x working on this machine. Always stuck at boot. I am so running a 2.6 kernel, and it works great (had to backport libc and module-init-tools).
I am willing to make a kernel-image package for prep machine, if someone need it, and is ready to test it (i have only this prod-Prep 133Mhz).
BTW, i did some other packages and backports for PPC machines (ie recompiled Bind which gave BSD_COMPAT errors).
Let me a few time to set up a repository for it.For now, you could get my config on http://perso.efrei.fr/~walter/debian-ppc/ but kernel is very limited to my machine, and is unlikely to work on any other. I will make more generic and non-backporting-required package when free time will come.
BTWII: if someone could help me finding why 2.4 kernels do not like my Estrella...
