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

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.
