Hi Frans,

On examining the install page I found that it is pretty much a
duplication of the "supported hardware" chapter of the woody powerpc
installation guide. So I can update it to match the information in the
sarge manual quite easily (and the sarge manual has been updated for
newer hardware) as a first step.

Could some one tell me why this duplication exists? Why can't the
install page simply be a link to installation manual chapter found at 
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/powerpc/ch02s01.html.en ?
