Hardware.

So I believe that if you are using an iBook G3, you should always 
configure as a "New World." I am assuming its not a clamshell looking 
thing. Installing OS9 wouldn't change this.

You might want to set up the partitions using mac-fdisk, as I think the 
OSX disk utility costs you some extra blocks. Just put the separate 
partitions for OS9 and OSX anywhere after the tiny bootstrap partition, 
and configure yaboot accordingly.

At least I think this is correct, someone please correct me if I am 
wrong. Best of luck!
