Did you follow that guide?


Getting GRUB working on PPC Macs is not fully supported by Debian
yet. It's a work in progress still. It works on IBM PowerPC
machines though.

Various reports in the net recommend to purge grub completely and
reinstall. Did that supported by a install cd and chroot with no
effect. Did't found info's in Debian's BTS, though. Any one here
experienced similar effects? I tried 2.02+dfsg1-[1-3].

Did you also try to reinstall GRUB to the OpenFirmware partition?

I will look into fixing GRUB on PowerPC Macs at some point, but
I haven't had the time for that yet.
