Bug#282007: Installation Report PowerBook G3

Package: installation-reports

Debian-installer-version: http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/daily/powerpc/current/sarge-powerpc-netinst.iso

The CD is readable from MacOS and Windows XP.

Date: 19-Nov-2004

Method: Bootable CD image

Machine: Apple Macintosh PowerBook G3, Open Firmware 2.0.1

Processor: PowerPC (?)

Memory: ?

Root Device: N/A

Root Size/partition table: N/A

Output of lspci and lspci -n: N/A

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

System doesn't boot from CD at all; neither with "boot cd:,\install\yaboot" nor with "boot hd:1,yaboot" from Open Firmware prompt (after copying vmlinux, initrd.gz, yaboot, and yaboot.conf files to the root level of the hdd) does boot anything but Mac OS. Booting from Floppy is impossible since this PowerBook doesn't have one.

I can't see any way of getting Debian on this device :-(
