Anyways, I booted in MacOSX, downloaded the first Debian CD, and burnt
it with no problems using the nifty tool... what is it called? Mmmm,
Disk Burn or something... anyways, it comes default in MacOSX. The OS
recognizes the file as an ISO image, and asks you to mount it (loop
mount) or to burn it. Just put a blank CD in the burner, and say burn,
it should be done in 10-15 min.
Then, reboot, and remember to hold the keys for CDRom boot
is I recall correctly, people correct me if I'm wrong), since you said
you have no bootloader, thus, no menu will come up with the CD
When booting, go through the normal Debian Installation, selecting
keyboard language, and when all the actions menu comes up, you can
change into a root terminal on F2.
There, you have to mount the / partition. I recommend you to do it
/target (at this point of the "installation process", nothing should
mounted in that dir, check it just in case):
mount /dev/hdaX /target
Hopefully, you will be able to run ybin and fix it there.

Hi.. I just upgraded to OS X.3 and looks like the installer wiped
loader... so I don't get the dual boot option anymore.. I don't have
install cd with me either.. is there any way of booting into the
partition so that I can rerun ybin and setup yaboot again without
downloading the first CD's iso image onto my OSX partition but am
can burn iso images from OSX.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Please cc me on the reply...
