Well, I cannot save the result but it says that my bootstrap partition
is ext2 but a mac-fdisk -l  says it is an Apple_Bootstrap partition.

should you need more details I can write it down and type it, but it
seems that it cannot recognize my partition as Apple_Bootstrap but

I'd like those details, please, yes.

NB. I downloaded the iso from :

If you created the partition with the partitioning UI in that release at
any point, it's known to be broken.

In fact I cannot use only mac-fdisk because we cannot define the mounting point so (I'm not sure) we must define them in the partitioning UI.

Here is the result of a grep yaboot-installer /var/log/syslog
