If I remember correctly, a 6300 is not an Open Firmware-based PowerMac,
and the stock Debian support is for OF-based systems (starting with the
Performa 6360). You may have better luck with
<http://nubus-pmac.sourceforge.net>. It comes with Debian installer
images too - get that kernel booted if it works, and you will be able to
use the rest of Debian/PowerPC just fine. Note that you will have to
have a MacOS partition or disk to bootstrap from.
