Yes, the partition number is changed : from 10 it goes to 12.

I can see it with " dir hd:12,\ ", an dmount it from Linux.

I found out that if I only create the 3 new partitions then reboot, I can 
still boot macos9. Then I tried to go further in the installation, and it 
could not boot anymore.

You suggest MacOS may want to be the first HFS partition, I have tried to put 
it first on the disk and it didn't change anything.

I'm really wondering if anyone else on this list has an example as partition 
table that works. The two ones : before Debian install, and after.
