Question PPC First Installation


Can someone please help me? Would be verrrry kind ;)))

I try to install Debian on my Ibook. I read pretty much HOWTO's till now. I
loaded yaboot on my computer, but when I go to the OPEN FIRMWARE and I try
to start yaboot I see the pinguin (the ram disk has sometimes some problems
to start up). But in the end it will finish mit the following error message:

root fs is no mounted
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
KERNEL PANIC: VFS: Unable to mount roof fs on 03:04

By the way it is not possible to format the Disks in the HFS Format. When I
do it (I tried under OS 9.2.1 and OS X) and I chose HFS it will still format
the HD in the HFS+ Format when I go back and check the result. How bizarre!
But as I read for first time installation it doesnt matters if you have HFS+
on the disk where the yaboot is.

Thank you for your soon answer and I'm really look forward to switch to
but it looks a bit very very difficult in the moment
