package: boot-floppies
version: 2.2.16
architecture: powerpc
model: apple powerbook 3400
memory: 64
scsi: built in
cd-rom: external scsi will switch to internal ATAPI once installed
network card: built in NIC
pcmcia: none

i have gone through the base install booting from the floppies as i cant
seem to boot from the CDs and once it is installed i can get linux to boot
from the HD i have tried yaboot, quik, and trying to boot through the open
firmware but none of these methods work and i think there might be an
incompatibility with debian and the PB 3400 trying to boot from the HD
