RE: boot-floppies for stable

I am new to the list so let me know if I should not be posting this way.
I have a PowerPC Performa 6290 CD.  I ca not find information on if Debian
will run on it.  If not why?
Michael Schmitz; are you saying that NO PowerPC's will build on Debian?  I
think that I missed part of the thread since I am new as of yesterday(?).
Thank you for your time.

What work is required for them? I have a very slow LC475 that I can
attempt to build them on if that's any help and I'll have a go at doing
some sanity testing on them too. Would that be of use? Should I grab
boot-floppies and attempt to build them?
