I figured it out but you really should go back and re-read my post. I did
not mention /boot anywhere and YES I DID read the docs so maybe you could
be a little less insulting next time?


"Second, create an Apple_Bootstrap partition by using b. It will ask for
what block you want to start. Enter the number of your first free
partition, followed by a p. For instance this is 2p."

I already had what looked like a boot partition but I was asking here to
make sure I was doing the right thing by ignoring what the docs say in
my particular situation (which, as I mentioned, was a machine which
already had another distro on it).
