Has anyone tried yabooting multiple versions of os x on different partitions? I need to get around some compatibility issues by having 10.2 and 10.3 on the same box with gentoo.

Any predictions, advice, or experiences greatly appreciated!

You´ll probably have to hack yaboot a bit.
Tried the development version of yaboot, yaboot 2?

Solved it!

there's an additional os definition that can be used for osx: darwin.

3 osx installs will require hacking the code, apparently, but for just 2 it's fine to use

macosx=/dev/hdaX
darwin=/dev/hdaX
