Default upgrade to deb 3.1PPC mac mini

I am looking for a walkthrough or howto to upgrade the kernel on my mac mini debian system.

It currently has a vanilla install of Debian Sarge 3.1 kernel 2.6.8

I need to upgrade the kernel to provide audio hardware support.

I have tried to install a kernel that is prepackaged from ppckernel.org but I am unable to make it boot properly. The kernel gets scared, and cannot mount a partition (3,3) I believe I am not configuring yaboot properly.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

You would like to have sound, but debian is messed up....
I am using alsa-driver-1.0.10 (open source) to enable sound [im working on it]. If you have problems upgrading the kernel, i highly suggest that you go and read these two walkthroughs.
