I know I've mentioned this in a side comment in a previous post, but it's become a big enough annoyance that I would like to ask for help about it directly:
Why is it that mac-fdisk on the 2004.2 ppc64 cds complain about my hard drive in mac-fdisk, saying that the size is 900, which is not a block slize (512)
Because of this, I can't even START working w/ the ppc64 cds. I tried erasing my hard drive and setting everything to 0s w/ the mac disk utility, what else can I do to fix the problem?

I'm afraid the mac-fdisk on the ppc64 CD is broken. I had the same problem. See this post: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.ppc/557

I guess you could always try using parted.
