I am trying to determine why i can't get my installation of linux to boot
up properly.. I heard a rumor that the 'new world' rom macs can not
access an operating system after the first 8 Gbytes..
Is there substance to this? Can anyone direct me to the facts on this
Here is my attempted setup..
hda1 - 7 misc Apple parts
hda8 HFS 14 Gbyte (macOS 9 area)
hda9 HFS 25 Meg /boot (w/ 'fake' sys folder/yaboot.conf/etc)
hda10 ext2 1 Gbyte /root
hda11 ext2 2 Gbyte /usr
hda12 ext2 2 Gbyte /home
hda13 swap 128 Meg swap
What am I missing? I finally made a CD (linuxPPC) that would boot my
dual-G4 (using Ultra-safe mode) and allowed me to install the system
and packages.. but, I can't make it boot itself..
(trying to use Yaboot.. )
Any leads or advice is much appreciated
