Phew, that's pretty tough...

Some pointers you may not be aware of:
<http://archive.debian.org/dists/> contains the _packages_ of all old 
releases, but no CD images.
<http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/archive/> contains CD images starting 
with 3.1r0 (sarge).

I remember that potato was the first version for which I created .jigdo 
files, but I don't have them anymore! :-/

One possible approach: 
seems to suggest that while a 2.6 kernel is used by default on PowerPC for 
Debian 3.1, a 2.4 kernel may also be available. There are no details, but I 
guess entering some special value at the installer prompt will boot a 2.4 

Maybe ask on debian-powerpc@lists, some old-time users there may be able to 
supply old ISO images, or suggestions on how to get your (or some other) 
emulator to work...
