Package: boot-floppies
Version: 3.0.17
Severity: normal

[I'm not sure if this is the right package to report against but
apt-cache doesn't seem to be giving me any better ideas right now]

Having just installed on a Cube coming from a "little PPC experience" I
have to agree with this.  Branden's iBook page would make a very good
addition to the installation manual - there's a bunch of stuff I
wouldn't have picked up from the manual as it stands in there (in
general, I find the install manual doesn't cover "how do I boot this
?@!* machine into the installer" questions at all well).
