It would be useful if you provided more informations, like the Mac
model, the kernel you installed, the last message you saw, etc...

What version of Debian are you using, this sounds exactly like the problem I had.  It looked like it froze, but I have an external cd-rw that initialized, so I know that it was still going I just didn't have video  the video=ofonly kerrnel argument will help you determine if that is your problem.

the way I do this is when it starts up you get a boot: prompt.  then I hit tab to see what I have.   It displays the kernels available, and after the name I type video=ofonly, and  that will give me the grraphics display, after that I am not sure, I haven't avtually gotten a system installed yet
