Default Boot loader installation failed.

I'm a humble Mac user trying to start using Debian (Squeeze) on a 2.1 GHz PowerPC G5.The processor is a PowerPC 970fx*"G5" with 64-bit data paths and registers, with native
support for 32-bit application code.
I have download powerpc netinst image and run install64 command.
The installation progress well until the yaboot boot loader (last step before finish): it always fails at its 83% progression rate.*I have unsuccessfully tried all options proposed by the installer.
There is advice about installing the Debian Lenny's yaboot intead.What you think?Any help will welcome.
Thank you very much. --Eneko Gotzon Ares

There is a dedicated mailing list for the ppc arch, just in case you
still have not done it I would also post this question there:
