Hello, I followed the Appendix A HowTo for installing Debian on powerpc machines. I got all the way to the part where it says to remove your disc and reboot because it is complete. Upon reboot I see it booting and going through strings of commands. There is a picture of Tux the penguin at the top. Then the screen just goes blank. Any help?

What kind of machine is it?

Powerpc isn't just one kind of machine.  The ones I work with can't
display a penguin since they have no video at all, just serial.

Does booting recovery mode (single user) work? Maybe it is just X that
is broken.
