its working in cvs now, i have tested basedebs.tgz but not floppies
(my computer does not have a floppy drive).  

if someone could please test the floppy method i would appreciate it.

basedebs.tgz and floppy images (updated daily) are available at:

http://penguinppc.org/~eb/debian/$arch/

$arch is one of powerpc, sparc, m68k, and i386, fire off an email to
me if you want an additional arch added.  

floppy images are in the images-1.44 subdirectory.

you of course have to build a current cvs version of boot-floppies,
3.0.7 won't work.  i have a powermac build available at the above uri.
