I was unable to boot this way from the Debian 2.2r3 CD on an iBook
dual USB and I just tried it again. I just get a pure white screen, no
boot: prompt or text of any sort.

I can boot if I enter OpenFirmware and type:

boot cd:\install\powermac\yaboot

and then I do get a boot: prompt at which point I can type

debian video=ofonly

and boot into dbootstrap.

Since my initial troubles getting Debian PowerPC installed, I have
been able to install it and using benh's kernel source tree, I was
able to get a lot working. My next goal is to get my X 4.1 to work
with DRI and r128.
