Man!  Am I the only one with a 60GB drive in my powerbook?  Of course,
you didn't say powerbook.. but this leads to the question of: has
anyone upgraded their internal PB (1.33 GHz) drive?  On top of that..
google shows my drive [TOSHIBA MK6025GAS] as a 4200rpm drive.. aren't
there 7200 rpm drives for this machine??

Installing Debian on the third partition would need a manual
configuration of the parition table.  You also need to make a 800K
bootstrap partition (an option from the manual partitioner.  In the
end you will end up with an odd setup (I have 9 partitions and a
little free space at the end -- Bootstrap is partition 8, and Debian
is partition 9)
