Booting installer on RS/6000 43p-140



Hello,
for helping d-i I got an 43p-140 (IBM RS/6000).  Since there are no
specific install instructions on
http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.powerpc/index.html

I used http://www.solinno.co.uk/7043-140/getstarted.php

I get to the open firmware prompt, and do
>setenv load-base 1000000
and
>setenv real-base c00000

Both commands suceed. Current firmware is TIG01150 (which should be
sufficient, according to above page). Now the next command whould be

boot cdrom:

After this, the cdrom is briefly accessed, and then nothing. The
screen does not change. Doing it the "Apple" style, i.e.

boot cd:,\install\yaboot

simply yields an ok, though. 

Is it possible, to boot d-i on this prep-machine? And if so, which
would be the proper command? 

The tutorial from Rolf Brudeseth mentioned on the ports page seems to
be gone.

Thanks.

Greetings

           Helge
