Subject: Mac disk partitions
Date: Mon, 30 Apr 2007 15:36:29 -0400 (EDT)
Im installing Gentoo on an old B&W G3 Mac which had another distro on it.

According to mac-fdisk it appears to already have a boot partition on it.
So can I skip the creation of a boot partition and use the existing one?

Command (? for help): p
/dev/sda
        #                    type name                 length   base     ( size )  system
/dev/sda1     Apple_partition_map Apple                    63 @ 1        ( 31.5k)  Partition map
/dev/sda2         Apple_Bootstrap untitled               2048 @ 64       (  1.0M)  NewWorld bootblock
/dev/sda3              Apple_Free Extra              17847888 @ 2112     (  8.5G)  Free space

Block size=512, Number of Blocks=17850000
DeviceType=0x0, DeviceId=0x0
Drivers-
1: @ 64 for 23, type=0x1
2: @ 118 for 36, type=0xffff


(Yes, this Mac has SCSI disks ;-)
