Notice that i am working on a 2.4.27 debian kernel upload which supports nubus
kernels also, have been sidetracked with 2.6.10 and 2.6 kernel security builds

Once we have that, creating a debian-installer that works at least partially
on nubus pmacs should probably not be a major undertaking, just need people
with the hardware to test and provide feedback. Major problems will only
happen on the boot-loader side i guess.
