We'll see. The problems are unlikely to be as hard as getting d-i to
work with 2.2.  :-/

Heh. I'm using Linux on it, but then my PB is somewhat older.

Should be simple enough to do. You need to install the m68k includes and
libraries, both shared and -dev, for the target in /usr/local/m68k-linux/,
(I did that on my second server yesterday), but otherwise it's really
painless these days.

Don't forget to check their batteries regularly, assuming they still
have any. I have a fucked-up IIfx mainboard because the battery leaked,
started to gas out acid, and corroded away lots of stuff in there; two
of the four memory sticks I had in it are now unuseable.
