Where did you find something that claimed the bootstrap had to
be partition 2? My G4 has the bootstrap just before the root
filesystem, somewhere around 9 or 10. I don't remember for sure,
but it certainly isn't number 2, and it works just fine. I doubt
your machine is any different in that respect.
