Add to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports/ squeeze-backports main

Then do:

apt-get update
apt-get install linux-image-whatever-makes-sense

Options are:
llinux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.4-powerpc - Linux 3.2 for uniprocessor 32-bit PowerPC
linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.4-powerpc-smp - Linux 3.2 for multiprocessor 32-bit PowerPC
linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.4-powerpc64 - Linux 3.2 for 64-bit PowerPC
