I'm considering that, but first I want to make sure that the major problem is 
not my lack of understanding basic ppc or OF concepts (since 1988, this is my 
first step away from the x86 platform).

According to my filesystem info, I downloaded this from the debian site on 
December 20th.

What I had in mind is the machine with the 604 CPU, not debian ppc. I bought
