I don't think that it requires any more instructions than already exist.  Get
bootX from BenH at http://ppclinux.apple.com/~benh and the ramdisk off of the
ppc install page on the debian site.  You will also need the other files listed
(basefile, etc).  Install bootX, select the kernel and the ramdisk, and tell it
to boot linux.
