Based on this information, I now propose the following patch (also attached) 
to the errata:

+               <li>on G5 Apple machines the fans are very loud, switch to a 
different 
+               console and run <a 
href="http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/d-i/trunk/packages/rootskel/src/lib/debian-installer-startup.d/S05fancontrol-linux-powerpc?op=file&sc=1";>these 
commands</a>. This doesn't work on the latest modell (powermac 12,1 "iSight") 
yet (not supported in the kernel).</li>


regards,
	Holger

"When using the Debian mailing lists, please follow these rules:... When

We live in the year 2006, a few bytes wasted in the footer of a mail don't 
hurt anymore, but everybody is flooded with information and attention is a 
spare ressource. 
If you send a mail cc: to a list and to me, it will catch my attention even if 
I have none. Please don't. Unless you specifically want to catch my attention 
of course :) 
But If I don't say otherwise, I'm subscribed to the mailinglist (and this is 
true for non-Debian lists as well) and you don't need to cc: me. Thanks.
