Re: replacing ydl with debian

Hi there,
I switched from ydl to Debian on my iBook a few weeks ago.

I simply popped the new Sarge CD and ran the installer.
When asked for partitions, I just formatted the / and /boot partition, and
told the installer to mount my old /home as /home (straightforward, isn't

The install went fine, and I got my yaboot overwritten without problems:
OSX was still working and also my home data were there.
The only thing I had to do has been chown'ing /home/user to the user, but
that was pretty it.

Hope it helps, if you have any questions just ask!
