Yes, in this way it should be possible.

Yes, there is an kernel in the base, but this kernel is for a chrp
machine. This means: it doesn't work on your machine.  Powermac is not
the only one powerpc machine type.

In two or three days - this depends on linus and if linux-2.1.126 is then
available - i'll upload the 2.1.12x source and possible three kernel
images for our archive (masters Incoming).

These two are incompatible! MkLinux uses the old libc, debian/powerpc use the
new libc.
