It may not be strictly necessary.  See my recent email with subject
"Detailed notes: How to boot and install Debian from a USB stick on a
PowerPC Mac" that I sent to the debian-powerpc list.  I have used the
"businesscard", "netinst", "CD-1" and "DVD-1" isos successfully with
that procedure to install Debian wheezy on PowerPC Macintoshes from
USB sticks.  For the DVD-1 I needed an 8GB stick, of course.

Ah, OK. Lovely. :-)

I'll tweak sizes now for you... Done. Tomorrow's weekly build will get
a 4GB DVD#1, and the same should filter through to wheezy d-i beta
2. Please confirm if it works ok for you!

4GB sticks are now selling for US$3.00 a piece.

Oh, yes. :-)

Thanks!  I'll give it a try on Tuesday if I can.  Enjoy!
