I'm sorry, I don't know exactly what might be causing the freezes, but
you might be better served (at least at this stage) by subscribing to
the debian-m68k and linux-mac68k listservs. Especially with wacky, wacky
hardware like a Mac IIfx.
Among other things, exactly what kernel you're running and the settings
in your Penguin boot loader could make a big difference.
debian-68k is another Debian list. Info about the 68K Mac ports can be
found at http://mac.linux-m68k.org/, and the mailing list addresses are
there, too. The latter list has several Mac kernel hackers, and they'll
have a better shot at diagnosing the problem.
