Thanks for the advice.  For the time, I am travelling all summer and will be

to "bless" the Apple partition?

Yes, I find that a Ubuntu Breezy Badger 5.10 and possibly the Dapper
Drake 6.06 CD will create the correct initial two partitions.  I do
not know of a why to correct it after the fact; only by reformatting.

I'll be testing the Dapper Drake CD this weekend, if my schedule holds.

In the mean time, I'm trying to get my synaptics touchpad detected and the
2.6.15-1-powerpc kernel booted.  Stand by for more potential questions....

I hear iffy things about this but since I only have an iMac I woul be
of little help with that =(   Hopefully it will turn out to be trivial
for you.
