it's a bit tricky but nevertheless doable; as a result of the panther
install you can only boot into MacOS X. To correct this boot from the 
the debian install-cd, switch to the second console, mount your root 
filesystem, mount proc on the your root filesystem, chroot into into
it and execute ybin (install yaboot beforehand).
You should understand the procedure without me giving you the exact
commands! If you don't chances are just too high I overlooked 
something, or you need to apply a small variation which would
leave you with the undesirable situation of an unbootable debian.
Please don't be offended by this, but I don't want to give you
advice that might leave your debian unusable. That would be pretty
bad advice actually ;-)
