Pointers to faqs would be fine if you have any in mind.

Development is taking place on the m68k/mac kernel and it works for some
machines, as long as you don't touch the keyboard. I believe we're all
sort of waiting for a promised rewrite of adb to be finished.

That's really why debian-installer even supports 2.2 kernels. My only
m68k boxes are macs.
