News Flash, May 23, 2001: The installer has been updated with kernel 2.4.4.
This document describes how to upgrade an MkLinux (DR3) installation to Debian's Potato release on a Nubus-based Power Macintosh. We're assuming that you have Apple's MkLinux Booter already installed. The reference machine was an Apple Power Machintosh 6100 with Mace ethernet. We installed the rest of the system by downloading packages from the network.
An older version for a more complicated installation method is available here. If you have a low-memory configuration you may be interested as it doesn't require a ramdisk.
