you posted to debian-ports, which is really an alias for 6 or more
lists -- debian-alpha, debian-m68k, debian-sparc, debian-arm,
debian-mips etc etc.  don't do that ;-)  

the list you want is debian-powerpc@lists.debian.org

it depends if this is a PCI mac or not, i don't know the performa
models well enough to say.  if its the older NuBus, pre OpenFirmware
then no.  though there is a recent kernel effort to port linux to the
nubus.  if that is working enough you could install debian but it
would be a bit more difficult since the boot floppies don't support
that subarch yet.

i hope he did not say such a thing, i am writing this on a Blue G3
running Debian potato.
