Of course it's possible. I never did this myself (I did create a cross-compiler
for m68k under Linux/ia32 and Linux/PPC), since I took the (old) cross-compiler 
binaries for Linux/ia32 from Jes Sørensen. But I guess newer kernels need a
much more recent compiler.

I don't know whether Debian has a ia32-PPC cross-compiler. Of course you can
always build one yourselves :-)

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
