Short response:
RTFM, it's in the Gentoo-PPC FAQ.

More helpful response:
Try QUIK. I've never used it myself, but it's suposed to be really hard to set up, but it'll do the job.

ah, "read the 'free' manual"

i've read a bit on quik, seems what i need BUT, like a jackass I installed Gentoo with no HFS partitions, so if i need to reboot i'm f@#$'d, right? The install finished last nite and am at the point where i have to change the root passwd..would it be best to try to setup quik now and hope that it works?

As far as I understand so for you HAVE TO HAVE a HFS partition. Could be wrong have only been using a Mac for 2 weeks. Still learning.

As mencioned in the Gentoo manual, you have to have a bootstrap partition that contains the information needed about the system or systems that you have installed.

For ppc:
Partition NewWorld Partition OldWorld Filesystem Size Description
/dev/hda1 (Not needed) (bootstrap) 800k Apple_Bootstrap
/dev/hda2 /dev/hda1 (swap) 512M Swap partition
/dev/hda3 /dev/hda2 ext3 Rest of the disk Root partition

P.S. I'm a newbie in Linux world, if i siad any mistake please accept my excuses
