Yup, should be possible. But i can't say it directly for powermac's. 
I have a CHRP computer and setting the computer up is a little bit

There are round about 1000 packages available. Also a generic
base tarball.  Drow can say more about pmacs. 

We will have a complete distribution for slink, aka debian-2.1 in 
november or december. I hope it!
