Boot off your CD and launch "Drive Setup".  Then under the "customize
volumes" menu options, select the Apple_bootstrap partition and set the
options so that it is not automatically mounted at startup.  Then you
will have to reboot into Linux one more time and run ybin.

If this does not work, will probably have to use pdisk to manually re-
create the Apple_bootstrap partition.
