You may need to go into Drive Setup, select the drive from the list in the app's
window, and go into "Mount->Customize Volumes...". Then select the HFS volume,
and check the "Mount automatically on boot" checkbox. You'll probably just have
to boot MacOS from a CD-ROM to do this. Then MacOS should boot perfectly from
the partition.

Hopefully when Sarge goes stable, it'll have the version of mac-fdisk that lets
you set the automount flag for HFS partitions. Unfortunately, the version in
Woody does not.
