I recently partitioned up my first generation ti-book for OS9,X,yellow dog, & woody. I'm not sure how to properly set up the bootstrap(s) & yaboot.conf(s) to boot both of the distros. I currently have one bootstrap partition (installed with yellow dog) that lists the yellow dog partition, OS9, & OS X as bootable options. I can get it to boot to my debian partition by using a kernel from the yellow-dog partition, and passing it the "root=/dev/hdaX" arg. However, this just doesn't sound like the right way to do it. If I remove the yellow dog kernel (rm -rf /my/kernel - oops....), then I can't boot to the debian partition. I tried installing a second bootstrap partition & making the first point to that, but I've had no such luck so far. Any ideas on the proper way to do this?
