Does Debian work on PPC boards?

I mean, is there a non-68K version of Debian that supports CSPPC/BPPC hardware in PPC mode?

Yes you can install Debian Sarge under PPC mode just fine.
It's not the easiest thing but it's doable as you can see from a thread on my blog

There's a guy on a.org that made a tutorial about it recently.

Nice mfilos!

Did all hardware work? Did you have sound, ethernet, USB, etc? I would have tried a different window manager than the very bulky Gnome if I were you.
