Hmm, I've always wanted to try this but never found the time. As far
as I can see after a google search, is that E30 was working in the 2.1
series but I can't find any references after that which may mean that
it depends on what hardware you've got (SCSI/IDE, graphics card). At
any rate, ask on debian-powerpc as they might have a clue.
(Here is a link with one comment about this :-
and from Yellow Dog Linux (but note no mention of E30) :-
