The following happened when trying to install Debian on an Apple
G5, on a second sata hard drive. The first sata hard drive is the
original one with OSX on it.
After successful installation of the base software, and after rebooting
the machine to boot from the hard drive, I was unable to boot into
Linux at all, only into OSX.
The conclusion was that an incorrect entry "device=xxx" in yaboot.conf
was the source of the problem. It is believed that this incorrect entry
comes from an inappropriate output from ofpath.
All glory details are well documented in the following thread of the
debian-powerpc mailing list.
