No no.. This is not intel. It's a Macintosh.

In order to install a new kernel it is the best idea to fetch a vanilla kernel from kernel.org and patch it with the series by Benjamin Herrenschmidt (ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/benh/). And then just compile. You need yaboot (etc/yaboot.conf and /usr/sbin/ybin) too.

www.ppckernel.org is a nice place too.

Search the archives of debian-powerpc@lists.debian.org.. There're a lot of threads refering to this topic.
