Having problems with your IBM pSeries p655 Server ?

Debian on p655

\015 Hello there!\015\012\015\012We are trying to install debian on a p655 over yaboot but encountered the following problem:\015\012\015\012first we set up a dhcpserver and a tftp server, the filename points to the yaboot binary in the tftp root. over the openfirmware prompt we see its getting the proper ip via dhcp, the gateway and stuff and the yaboot file, then the error occurs and it says something about unknown or corrupt filesystem. we thought it was because of a malformed device string to the tftp server but after trying almost all combinations quit trying.\015\012\015\012Has anyone ever installed debian on a p655 and knows how to setup the correct files? i used the files from: \015\012http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/dists/etch/main/installer-powerpc/current/images/powerpc64/netboot/\015\012\015\012I think those are the right ones, but i think something within the configuration files is broken.\015\012\015\012greetings\015
