I've been running Debian quite happily on my Deskpro XL at work for a
few months now.
All I had to do was download the kernel patch available from a URL
given in that HOWTO, apply it to a copy of the source I had on a
friend's machine, make a kernel, mount the rescue disk, copy the new
kernel over the old one, and run rdev.sh on the floppy. And everything
worked like a charm. :)
