It didn't help that we couldn't get in the room before 8 PM to setup the
hardware.  I'd like to thank everyone for their patience while I stumbled
through resolving the issue of how to get the installer on the PPC box.  
Overall, I think things would have been smoother if I had installed on my own
systems (I was familiar with the exact hardware, so the install would have been
quicker).  But then installing on unfamiliar hardware pointed out some of the
issues you can expect to have when doing an install on these hardware types.

I didn't have time to cover the update and upgrade processes for Debian.
