  **Greetings All,
I've started to pull my hair out trying to install Debian Etch PPC on a 
PowerPC G4 Server with a SCSI hard drive.

The installation goes fine using a cdrom to boot into the intitial 
install. Then I restart and everything appears to be working until I get 
to the "second stage boot..." the screen seems to stall and then turns 
black and remains black forever. I thought maybe I had to do some 
configuring in open firmware, but I am just not sure?

can anyone help?  thanks
