Anyone else able to chime in before I give up on PowerPC again? Sure
would like to get this running again.

QUESTION: Is there a way to rebuild partition 1 on these Apple disks?
The one labeled 'Apple_partition_map '? Seems like that's the only
thing I haven't touched yet having rebuilt this machine twice.

Again, this machine has run Gentoo for a few years. I was doing a
major emerge -e @world operation which seemed to finish successfully
but when I rebooted the kernel doesn't see the drive. I've rebuilt the
machine 2 more times from scratch and continue to be stumped by this
problem.

Thanks,
Mark
