The cause of the problem I posted about with brltty on powerpc ubuntu and 
debian cds has been found. It apparently has to do with vcsa and the need 
to read short ints instead of bytes. Hopefully when this is fixed in 
brltty and then the new package of brltty is implemented in a debian 
installer, I'll be able to install debian on a powerpc mac mini. Since 
debian testing is using brltty 3.9 (rev. unknown) I'm hoping it will not 
be too long before I can try a linux install on my ppc machine.
