Could become difficult:
I'd try to get rid of the netatalk stuff, as it seems to be
responsible for the kernel panics, or reinstall/configure it. For both
options I'd try to chroot in my system before, as described on
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-powerpc/2003/10/msg00262.html> and
then either remove or reinstall/configure the netatalk stuff ...

In short, as it's a bit late to elaborate (3:40 AM :)
If you need to remove it manually: finding the files installed with

dpkg -L netatalk
perhaps even some dpkg-database files ... don't know ...

dpkg -l | grep netatalk
The latter tells you what netatalk packages you have installed

Or if you need to complete the netatalk install I'd do a
dpkg -C
The latter should tell you what to do if it finds netatalk is only
partially installed ...

I'll be back only tomorrow ...

Please keep us up-to-date on what's going on if it does not work ...

Until tomorrow ...
