Bug#57369: PowerPC documentation inaccurate

Package: boot-floppies
Version: current
Severity: normal

The boot-floppies documentation for PowerPC is woefully out of date.  It
needs updated for CHRP, PowerMac, and PReP platforms.  Things missing 
include platform specific instructions for preinstallation requirements,
media that can be installed from, types of bootloaders available, firmware
specific instructions, types of media that can be installed from, proper
installation images to use for each platform, types of console (headed/
non-headed) that can be used, special powerpc specific packages of note
(like powerpc-utils etc.), and lists of machine models that comply with
each supported architecture.  When/if APUS support is complete the 
documentation needs to support that subarch as well.

There are seperate documents containing some of this information that can
be merged into the official documentation.
