I had Gentoo installed and it's been working fine and dandy...

On the other partition I had OS X + OS 9

..

In OS X I went into startup disk and said to boot to OS 9.. it booted into OS 9..

Went back to boot into X, but now I no longer see the yaboot screen... can't choose to boot into X, or Linux, it just automatically boots into OS X (or os 9 if i set it in startup panel).


Anyway I can get yaboot to show up again?

It seems you overwrote your yaboot by choosing the other system inside OS X or OS 9. Better configure yaboot to boot one of these systems ;-)

Now you have to boot your LiveCD with the kernel-parameter root=/dev/hdaX (where X is your Gentoo root partition) and run ybin -v again. That should reinitialize yaboot.

If your bootstrap partition appears before Mac OS X's, you can reset your PRAM (press cmd+option+P+R at startup). Yaboot will become your default bootloader again.. But you'll lose some settings like time and date...
