I just install Gentoo to the iMac (lamp).

I make the partition with OS X, which I have a free space in end of hard disk.

I then make two partitions for Gentoo : Gentoo and GentooSwap.

The are hda14 and hda15.

Now I come to the step to install ypboot, but I find there is no space for the boot partition.

Why osx did not make the boot partition? Is it still needed? What can I do now?

what i did is made 3 HFS partitions using the panther install disk.. the first one for gentoo and the second for mac os x and the third is a dump partition. Then i booted the gentoo live cd and used mac-fdisk to delete the first partition and create an apple bootstrap partition, a swap and the root partition. What instructions are you going from because on PPC you dont create a boot partiton you create an apple bootstrap partition, go here and follow these instructions http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc.xml?full=1 if you follow those you will be sweet!
