Installing onto a powerbook for the first time


I started installing Debian onto a powerbook (or any PowerPC hardware
for that matter) for the first time.  When I originally set the system
up I predicted that Linux may be on the cards at a later stage and I
split the hard disk into 2, and left roughly half the disk unused.  I
started the install and immediately ran into the problem of trying to
get it to boot given I was trying to preserve the Mac OS 9 and X
partitions.  So now I'm stuck.  Is there any way out without trashing
the existing partition or throwing hardware at it?

If there is no other way than throwing hardware at it, is the solution
to buy a disk with a firewire connector, or will that lead to more

Thanks in advance,
