the potato-powerpc-1.raw is only 34MB big, the reason for this is

 Using POLICY_P.000;1 for  1/doc/package-developer/policy.pdf.gz (policy.ps.gz)
 Using PROGRAMM.000;1 for  1/doc/package-developer/programmer.html.tar.gz (programmer.ps.gz)
 Using FSSTND-1.002;1 for  1/doc/package-developer/fsstnd-1.2.dvi.gz (fsstnd-1.2.ps.gz)

 Size of boot image is 4000 sectors ->
 Error - boot image is not the an allowable size.
 Using PACKAGES.000;1 for  2/dists/potato/main/binary-powerpc/Packages.cd.gz (Packages.gz)

This error message is true, because of

Is docu for this problem available or could you give me a workaround for this how to
solve it? I can remove the boot entries, yes, but with the current boot-floppies situation we
get this problem also with all other architectures. 

Another 'missleading' is the size of the 4th src-image. This should fit to src-img-2 and -3. 
I got some warnings about missing packages, this could be the problem ...
