You have to install one of the kernel packages in woody:
  apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.8-powerpc  OR
  apt-get install kernel-image-2.2.19-pmac

If you're using ybin/yaboot with a normal configuration then this is all
you need to do. With other bootloaders you may need to copy the kernel to
an appropriate location and configure your bootloader. If you install the
2.4 kernel, be sure to also install and configure devfsd.
