I think you're looking for the woody installation manual for powerpc, at

<LI><a href="http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/dists/woody/main/disks-powerpc/current/doc/install.en.html";>Installing Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 For PowerPC</a>

It has details about how to boot the install system without floppies,
creating a special bootstrap partition, etc. etc. Yes, after you get the
base system installed you can install other packages; if you install woody
your sources will already be set to testing.
