Ok, I didn't know of that chance. But, what about the kernel? If he sets up
etch, he will have the etch kernel. Then deboostrap will install its own
kernel, wich, most probably, won't work. Does yaboot in sarge show a kernel
menu, like grub does in the i386 arch?

Have you got any pointer to simple howtos about using deboostrap from an
already installed system? Is it enough to say "deboostrap --arch powerpc
sarge / file:///cdrom/"?
