will PPC installer work with DOS partition tables


Does the Debian PPC installer work OK with DOS partition tables? as in the same partition tables we use on intel machines?

The reason I ask is it looks as if the newer macs OF is broken in such a way that it will require a partition dedicated to holding the boot loader (if you want to get rid of non-Free macos) since there is no way to create a hfs filesystem accept to use macos I would rather use a DOS or ISO filesystem on such a partition as they can be fully created and maintained under a GNU/Linux only system, however BrokenFirmware will only read a DOS filesystem from a DOS partitioned disk.

if anyone knows of other methods of booting newer OF macs (the translucent kind) that does not require macos at any time let me know.
