Thanks for the info :)  It seems once you get refit working, you could
use a Debian installer CD and get it installed.  However, the Mac sucks
too much to try: You can't install more then two disks,

what do you mean by disk ?

 and you can't
install any of them in the right orientation.

I am getting more confused here:
are you dealing with a MacBookPro or a MacPro ?

  I have another disk I
could use (if the Mac supports SATA disks),  but since it's always been
installed in the right orientation, it's too likely to fail.

Your issues seem rather as hardware issues.
