Debian on an LCII

Hello all .. 

I am a long-time Linux (x86, Alpha, and Sparc) user, and I am looking to
install Debian on a 68k Mac. 

I have an LCII with 10M of RAM, 200M HD, and an Asante MacCon LC Ethernet
card. The Asante card can house a 68882 FPU, and if it will do me some
good, I'll pick one up on Ebay to put in there. 

What I don't have is a CDROM drive for it, so what I'd like to do is to
get a Debian 2.2/m68k CDROM and host that on my PC and export it via NFS.

I'm not really all that familiar with Mac hardware, so I'm not completely
sure whether or not this Ethernet card will work with Linux, or whether
the 68882 will benefit me. 

If Linux is known to work smoothly with an Asante and 68882 on an LCII,
I'll probably hunt down a 1G+ SCSI drive to use instead of the 200M that
I have in there now. 

Any opinions on this?
