If it's not to much trouble, I think you should update the boot floppies
to use Penguin 19.  Penguin 19 can replace both Penguin 17 and 18 as it
works on all of the supported Macs.  This would eliminate confusion
about which version of Penguin to use with which model of Macintosh.  

I just tried this on an LC475 (LC040 replaced with full 040) 36MB Ram
and an a Sonic LC Ethernet card.  I used network install option and its
downloading Packages.gz now.  I'll post to debian-boot if it is
successful and here if it is not.
