By any chance, could this be the problem where the swap partition must be
*named* swap? That's true for PowerPC partitions.

Also, pdisk (which underlies mac-fdisk) has been updated a great deal since
the version which is in the debian distribution. You could try the newer
version, from

<ftp://cfcl.com/pub/ev/>

We might want to consider updating if it works better.
