The floppy drive is only supported for the Mac II, so don't bother searching
for boot disks. There are some Mac side utilities to start the install.
The FAQ (http://www.mac.linux-m68k.org/faq.html) gives the installation
details. The way to boot macs for a quick test without installing anything
is to boot into the MacOS, use Penguin (the mac equivalent to loadlin) and
boot with a ram disk (available from the mac development ftp site) and a
mac kernel. The debian and redhat m68k install won't work for macs out of
The best mailing list for help is the mac developers' list (mail
firstname.lastname@example.org with body of 'subscribe linux-mac68k'). Its a
bit technical, but they'll be glad to help out with problems.
