if you d a normal boolean search with kernel compile forums.debian.net, then you will come upon a few tutorials.
Mr=B: . . . alrighty, thanks for that, that was mostly for humor that I posted nadir's special search terms . . . but, I'll check out the tutorials a bit more, however with your suggestions and nadir's links to the "lite version" I probably have enough data to get myself deeply into trouble . . . "a little knowledge" and all that. But, in reading the JDeere post he was reassuringly saying, "don't worry if you screw up, you can always boot back into your first kernel" . . . but it seems that he was referring to using GRUB, which for PPC we are using Yaboot; my LMDE install has GRUB and I have seen the different kernels in the boot process, but in Yaboot not. Can PPC do GRUB so we could get the added choice of various kernels in the GUI?
Also, since I'm older and rely on treachery to overcome problems . . . and still looking for a way to nano my way out of this problem; could I boot the iMac/Debian computer in target mode and connect to it by FW with my MintPPC iBook and open a terminal/text editor in the iBook and then modify the iMac system timer file that way????????? The code(s) to run to do it that way -- I don't exactly know -- perhaps I would try to load the "xconfigure" or the other utilities in the iBook? (not sure if I would have to) OR, if I could just navigate to the kernel using "nano /etc/kernel xyz.3.9.35" in the iBook, Or if I could simply launch the nano text editor in the iBook GUI, navigate to the iMac kernel using the "open file" option, open it in the GUI text editor, make the changes, CTRL-D to save it . . . and that would be it?? Is it worth trying it that way, can it be done? Right now the primary issue to overcome is the multiple kernel panics while trying to boot, after that things are OK, "if it aint' broke, etc."
