please, please, ...
go to ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/potato/main/disks-powerpc, and get the
base2.2.tgz file, and the several files in the apus subdir.
then get the latest bootstrap from sunsite.auc.dk, it's dated march 2000, or
something such, and try out the install, using the kernel named linux in the
apus subdir, and send any problems/difficulties/etc ... back to me.
about the "slink" stuff, the ppc slink stuff you have is more than 1.5 years
old i think, it was before slink was frozen, and before slink/ppc got removed
and replaced with sid/ppc which is now potato/ppc.
please just delete it, and get the new version. I can even send you a CD set
to test if you really have no other means.
