I would like to point out that ppc/bootinfo.txt does _not_ specify
"&partition;". So I really wonder why System/Library/CoreServices/BootX
is specifying it.

When I get some free time I'll try to find out where &partition; came
from and why BootX is using it.

If you find some time, I think it would be interesting if we had a
grub-boot test image where BootX is using:

boot &device;:,\System\Library\CoreServices\grub.elf

I suspect Apple users would then be able to "properly" boot from USB

boot usb0/disk:,\\:tbxi
