Could you please test also out my kernels at
http://people.debian.org/~luther/powerpc/2.4.22, especially the chrp
variant ? I need tester in order to be sure they work well on with the
official kernels.

Fully untested stuff, better subscribe to debian-boot and ask there.

The kernels i built should support the di well enough, but have been
tested on CHRP/pegasos and powermac only. I will work more on them this
weekend though, so maybe by early next week, i will try to have a
working di kernel+initrd for CHRP (tested on my pegasos only naturally).
