I'll include this on the www.debian.org/ports/powerpc web-pages.
With the work from marcos (for powermac: kernel, .config, bootargs and install docu
in txt, html and latex) and from matt for the same thing on PReP i got now some spare
time to work on the web pages. I do it currently for 'german', because this is my
native language and if i integrate it to the cvs it doesn't looks up very often for
the users (only if they set the language to german in netscape, mozilla or lynx).
