help with IBM powerpc Model 40P RS6K machine

I have installed debian/linux on several Intel and one Alpha machine.
We no have an IBM Model 40P ppc machine that we would like to
investigate with Debian/LInux before trying linuxppc or yellowdog.  I
have found the powerpc subtree within the potato/unstable tree.
However, I cannot find anything specific on boot, root, driver, and
rescue diskettes for this machine.  Can I use one of the others
(powermac, prep, chrp, etc.).  Also is there a documentation effort
started for these machines we could use to get started.  I believe
once I have the system booted with the rescue diskette, I could go
from there (found the base diskettes in the common subdirectory).
