don't use BootX on G4's its not reliable at all, use yaboot instead,
much better way to go.
when partitioning with pdisk (or whatever debian calls it) create a
800K partition type Apple_BootStrap this will hold the yaboot
bootloader, the special type prevents macos from `helpfully' mounting
it and then screwing it up when it sees its not real macos.
I wrote some scripts to make maintaining and updating/formatting a
bootstrap partition a breeze, <http://www.alaska.net/~erbenson/ybin/>
yaboot can be found at:
its best if the bootstrap partition is the first one, before the
macos partition so you can more easily setup mutli OS bootmenus.
