Hi Robert,

I'd love to test it.  And I have PPC hardware (PowerPC Macs) to test
it on.  But I'm not a developer.  What can I do to help?

Basically, you'll need to get d-i source code and grub-installer
source code. Build both (the last with the applied patch provided by
Robert) and add it in localudebs before build the mini.iso. Burn it on
a CD and test.

Thanks. But as I said, I'm not a developer (for lack of time -- I have a day job, and I'd like to keep it!) What I can do is test things.

If someone who understands Otavio's description of the task is willing to make an .iso that I can burn to a CD, I'll be happy to test it and provide detailed reports on my success or failures.

Hoping I can be of help!
