In contrast to Jeroen's report that "Wheezy installation went fine
on G3 Mac"...
I just tried the sid_d-i "testing" daily businesscard. (details of
exactly which iso are available on request)
Install went without a hitch until it came time to reboot into the
newly installed system.
The stage-1 boot script asked "... Linux or CD..." as expected. I
typed "l" for Linux and was presented with a flashing questionmark
on a folder. This is *not* the regular Mac flashing questionmark on
a folder icon that Open Firmware presents when it can't find any
bootable media. It's much cruder and lot more pixelated.
Tomorrow I'll try again. I'll see if I can get some log files by
booting the CD in rescue mode.

I tried installing sid_d-i in expert mode so I could get it to install
Sid versions of the yaboot-related stuff.
I filed an installation report with a full set of logs. Bug#636269
Hope it helps!
