Re: moving from linuxppc - newbie needs help please

is also my reason 2 move 2 debian
starting from the smallest install
and making things grow only with really needed things
is what i like
(but have to study more 2 put downloaded-.deb things from my hfs-partition
hope these are not mission impossible
local mirror doesn't have to be getting all..does it?
preparing .deb things @ hfs-partition won't make additional installin work?)

early iMacs are OldWorld
OF didn't work ok on my Rev.B
some people say that the latest firmware update will
change the machine 2 NewWorld
is this true?
i think i did the update when
making 8.5.1 > 8.6
but BootX is working OK
when installin via BootX
what i did was
putting the LinuxKernel together with my Mac's System
and made BootX select the
at the other partition
(where i put other materiels needed 2 install)
maybe didn't have to be "other" but my OS9 is on hsf+
what to get prepared with
when doing the smallest install
