	The same kernel, different installers, package managers and package
file formats.  Debian uses the *.deb packages and dpkg package manager,
LinuxPPC uses *.rpm and the RPM Red Hat Package Manager.

	There's some confusion added because sometimes people refer to
LinuxPPC as the name of the monolithic (commom) kernel of Linux compiled for
the PowerPC, and that's the same kernel Debian uses, but LinuxPPC is really
the name of the PowerPC Linux Red Hat-based distribution.
