You can use two ways which don't involve os 9 and bootx, i
suppose you are running an oldworld machine, if not, yaboot
cdrom booting should work just fine.

You can either use the miboot d-i floppies found at :


  (or http://people.debian.org/~luther/d-i/images/daily/powerpc/floppy-2.4/
  for using 2.4 kernels)

Both should work fine starting with tomorrows daily build, altough the
different driver and additional component floppy are a bit messed up right
now, and loading more than one floppy is still possible only with a kludge. We
will fix this next week though.

The other possibly involves accessing the Of directly through the serial
console, and booting the .coff kernel below, altough i have had reports of the
initrd being too big for some oldworld firmware implementations.
