RE: Installing on a Mac 6300.

Actually, I doubt it. I'm pretty sure about it, because I happen to
coodinate the mac68k port of Linux-m68k. I've not heard of anybody 
running Linux-m68k on a PowerPC machine. If it ran, you would be without
support for the SCSI controller. Linux-m68k is useless for you either

You might confuse m68k Linux (really Linux-m68k or Linux/m68k) with
MkLinux, the Mach microkernel OS disguised as Linux. Linux-PPC doesn't
support Nubus based PowerMacs, and the 6300 is probably such a beast. 
MkLinux does support it. On the Linux-PPC mailing list, I've never seen
mention of Debian, only RedHat. And that's for MkLinux and 'real'
Linux AFAIK. Ask on debian-powerpc for their support of MkLinux.
