if you want macos, then you do need to first partition with the macos
partitioner but you must create the placeholder partition for linux
at the BEGINNING of the disk *NOT* the end.

otherwise you can't put the bootstrap partition first and i get
craploads of mail about how to fiddle with OF.  always always put the
bootstrap partition BEFORE any macos partitions,
