The AV Macs use MACE Ethernet which does not work in the kernel supplied
with Debian Potato.  

Andrew McPherson posted the following links to the
linux-mac68k@mac.linux-m68k.org mailing list a few days back.  These are
supposed to contain beta drivers for MACE Ethernet.  


Note:  I don't have a system with MACE Ethernet, but others have posted
with some success using the 2.2.16 kernel.  2.4.X still has other issues
is probably only for the brave and experienced.
