Speaking of which, http://www.debian.org/ports/ lists the motorola 68k
as the second-most popular debian-port, then later down the list
mentions the powerpc.  Both mention Macs.  Are all modern Macs
powerpc, or do I need to look at the specs to know what I need?

Don't ask??  Sure, bring up something like that and then forbid me from
asking ...

Did you "not configure everything" as in you just haven't bothered, or
as in it's a royal pain and it's not worth it?

Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly.  I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
