No, only macs with the "new-world" generation of open firmware (like
"BIOS" in the x86 world) are able to boot from Debian CD:s. (Apple have
proprietary stuff on their bootable CD:s) PowerBook 1400 has not
new-world firmware.

http://nubus-pmac.sourceforge.net/ links to a iso-image for installing
sarge, I would start there.
