Install a Debian in an E/30

Dear Sirs,

I`m trying to install Debian on a E/30 with IBM processor RS6000, 512MB RAM
and 6 HD's of 9GB scsi each.

I've downloaded the Potato .iso file, but I can't boot using the CD. Using
the floppy disks neither.

The disks used were the ones in "prep". I created "boot.bin", "rescue.bin"
and "root.bin" using rawrite.

When trying to boot using the "boot.bin" disk, "Loading Software" is
displayed on screen and the box freezes.

Do you have any suggestions about Debian installation on a E/30? All the
Debian sites were already read.

Thanks in advance for your help.
