I have used recent d-i builds (Sarge RC2 and later, kernel 2.6.8) to
boot a G4 laptop and it has detected an external firewire drive
succesfully. The external drive in question was a newer G5 tower in
target disk mode ;-)
Might be worth a try: boot from CD, go to virtual terminal, mount two
disks, and copy?
