in the meanwhile I did not stand still, but I tried:
1) boot with rescue CD as Frank suggested

Did you bind-mount /dev, /proc and /sys as well?
I did not - I though rescue would do that for me.
3) get and install yaboot
3) nvsetenv boot-device "$( ofpath /dev/<HFS_BOOTSTRAP_PARTITION> ),\grub"
Does ofpath /dev/sda1 show a correct path?
it does print a reasonable OpenFirmware path:
should actually sda1 (the minimal partition at the beginning) or sda2
(the 20MB partition) be used?
my question is if everything is partitioned and installed correctly.
If I boot holding down "option", shouldn't all bootable disks be shown?
boot-device is only the setting with tells OF where to automatically
boot from, but if a good disk is found, it should be found: can somebody
try on his GRUB mac?
On my iBook which still has yaboot, I see a Hard Disk Icon with a small
penguin. On the PowerBook I don't see it.
parted shows me 4 partitions
1) 32KB "no file system", named Apple, no flags
2) 20MB "no file system", untitled, flagged as boot
3) 96GB ext4, untitled, no flags
4) 4GB linux-swap, swap, swap
is that fine?
I wonder if inside the chrooted environment, if I configure network and
sources, I can "reinstall" something and fix the situation so at least
OF recognizes this as a bootable disk?
PS: I noticed that the CD still has the wrong mirrors source list, as a long time ago. What should be the correct one to use currently and can itbe fixed too?
This is something I cannot influence as this is blocked here .
do we have a page which shows the current advised settings?
