Sorry for answering so late, but I did not have any time to test it before.
I just finished my test on my PowerMac blue/white.

My testmachine as per /proc/cpuinfo was a PowerMac1,1; 66 (Blue&White G3).

I burned the CD from Oktober third.
Booting was not problem. I even did a full install, as I wanted to upgrade my 
son's machine to the actual GNU/Debian testing.

As my wife's Pismo PowerBook has a broken CD-ROM drive I used the netboot 
vmlinux and initrd.gz from 
(as per October 4), modified my yaboot.conf a little bit and voila I got to 
the first language selection prompt.
/proc/cpuinfo gives PowerBook3,1.

Thanks a lot for your work!

Best regards 
Niklaus Giger
