Debian Powerbook install

Hi Matt,

I have just bought a powerbook and am seeing the same errors that you
saw.  ie. "hda: lost interrupt".  This must be a kernel issue as I am
using yaboot to boot the linuxppc cd.  I have successfully installed
debian on a G4.  I did this by putting appropriate kernels and ramdisk
images onto a zip disk and booting from it.  I'm not sure if I can do
something similar with the powerbook.  It doesn't have a zip disk or a
floppy drive, though I do have access to a usb floppy drive at work.

Did you boot from floppy boot disks to install debian on  your powerbook

Brendan Simon.
