that is one of the weird things. I went back to mac os and deleted the partitions hoping that maybe the installer would rather create them itself. When i look at /proc/partitions now (after rebooting and getting the installer going again) it shows all the partitions including the ones I removed.

it seems to get hung up on partitions.

I was wondering if this could be a similar problem to the Q700 2 drive problem? While trying to install on a Q700 I had to add a line (mac53c9x=1,0) to fix that problem. Is there something similar maybe going on?

I think you need that mac53c9x=1,0 argument on the kernel commandline until the SCSI reselect issues are fixed in the kernel. So on any 68040 Mac with multiple SCSI drives (HD and/or CD) I would use it until further notice.
