   Of course, you need the binaries for the compiler to do that... :-)

   I recommend you set up your PC to connect to the Internet and offer IP
masquerading to the Macs over ethernet.  Then use the dpkg-ftp method of
dselect to download new packages.  (If you run lynx as root, you can
install packages by downloading them from <http://www.debian.org/>.)

   By the way (everyone), if you haven't downloaded apt (from slink) and
switched to dpkg-apt, you should definitely try it.  APT rules!

   Yes, netatalk has been ported to m68k like most Debian packages.
