Thanks, the HOWTO looks great, but unfortunately there seems to be a
significant difference between 7248 machines and my 7043 (NetBSD also
lists them on different bullet points[1]).  I was not able to boot
the kernel images linked on that page.

But I made some progress today: I was able to boot a SuSE 7.3 kernel
as described at [2].  Unfortunately I can't find any SuSE 7.3 PPC
CD-Rom images to take the installation any further[3].

When I find some time I'll take a shot at cross-arch debootstrapping
by moving the harddisk to another machine.  Perhaps this works, but
I'll still need to find a kernel that boots.  I can only hope that 
SuSE 7.3 kernel works nicely with a Woody or Sarge.

So ein Programm gibt es aber genausowenig unter Windows :-)
