Install woody or sarge on IBM 7025-F50

   i am getting really tiered installing Debian(Woody or Sarge) on
   this little Bastard Box called 7025-F50....
   Right now i got Debian Sarge installer booting...
   How this work !!
   I create an iso cd with the content of
   ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/sarge/main/installer-powerpc/current/images/powerpc/cdrom/   in it...
   also i create a /etc/ dir with yaboot.conf at the root of the cd an
   i put yaboot from
   ftp://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/sarge_d-i/powerpc/current/sarge-powerpc-netinst.iso at the
   root of the cd.
   Then i boot the Box ... Pressing F8 to get the OF Prompt
   then make a boot cdrom:,\yaboot
   right now  i can boot the 2.4/vmlinux from directory above...
   because the 2.6 vmlinux does not work with the symbios scsi
   controller in the box.
   Ok the debian-installer boot, i have to cahnge the cd (put
   sarge-powerpc-netinst.iso) in the drive....
   Everything works fine the Partitioner came up (not really a good
   thing i missed cfdisk) .. and the system begin a Base system
   installation. Until the Error the bootloader was not configured
   correct (during kernel-image-2.4.27-pmac install) ...
   Ok i skiped to installing without bootloader but the same thing it
   can't install the kernel-image

   Any hints ??

   I am really tired with this Box...

Mit freundlichem Gruß,
