actually you want a large HFS partition at the start that will reserve
all the space you want for debian, this partition you delete with
mac-fdisk.

drive setup creates the wrong type of partition unsuitable for
bootstrap since macos will ruin it.  

and i think 20MB is not enough space for OSX or GNU/Linux ;-)

so add up the space you want for debian, create the first HFS
partition using that number, then create your macos partition and
anything else.

then in mac-fdisk delete that first HFS partition and create the 800K
Apple_Bootstrap and the rest of your ext2 partitions.
