Downloaded and installed the minimal sarge ppc iso, the update for Aug 1.
This time it seems to automatically setup the Apple_bootstrap.
This message still came up.
NO NEWWORLD BOOT PARTITION WAS FOUND. THE YABOOT LOADER REQUIRES AN
APPLE_BOOTSTRAP AT LEAST 819200 BYTES IN SIZE, USING THE HFS MACINTOSH
Went back to the partitions and renamed the boot partition from untitled
Selected finish and the install proceeded. Installed just fine.
Ran the debian install again running the auto setup. Left the partitions
the same as the first time. The same NO NEWWORLD BOOT message came back.
Just went to the partition and reselected NewWorld boot partition
selected finish and the install proceeded.
Sarge installed just fine.
Again the machine is a Quicksilver G4- one hard drive for debian and the
other for OS X.
