i have a G4, so basically i had the same problem. what i did is use
the linuxppc boot disk, get the computer on the network, switch to the
console (i think alt f2) untar the base files (i can't remember where
i got them from), edit /etc/fstab, remove /sbin/check_configure (or
something like that), edit /etc/hosts (did i forget anything?).
reboot, and you have a debian installation. from there just use
dselect + apt to upgrade/install all the packages you want. let me
know if you need more help.
