quadra 700 install issue

I am trying to install debian on my Mac Q700. I downloaded the ISO image: woody-m68k-1.iso.

I follow the instructions to extract (using Stuffif expander) to a folder called Install on my mac drive. I do so. I end up with the mac folder under the one I created.

I load the Penquin application and set the kernel pointing to the root.bin file in the mac folder.

When I boot from penquin I get the following error:

Wrong magic number 0 in kernel header

I tried using stuffit to expand the root.bin file just to see if it was corrupt and stuffit was able to uncompress the file just fine. I then tried to point the penquin to the uncompressed file and got the same error.

Any ideas?
