It's easier if you just use the OpenFirmware boot selector (push the Alt
key after the initial "bong" when booting and you will be able to choose
MacOSX or GNU/Linux) Then, it's just a matter of execute ybin from your
normal Linux session.


P.S.: You should not use the MacOSX partition tool because it will
remove all your partitions, use the linux's fdisk.
