Installing on PowerBook 5300cs

I'm installing Debian potato on PowerBook 5300cs and i can't
boot from the rescue floppy - the system asks the floppy
drive, but then ejects the floppy.

Firstly i formated the disk (on FreeBSD 3.4):
# fdformat /dev/rfd0a

Then i wrote rescue.bin to the floppy with standart string:
# dd if=rescue.bin of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024 conv=sync ; sync

I know that NetBSD can't be installed on PowerBook 5300
series, because it [Mac] lacks 'Open Firmware', but i didn't
find such a warning in installing-Debian instruction.
