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!
