Firstly, which partition do I add to yaboot.conf to boot OSX? Nubish question, but I'm entirely new to PPC architecture and a search here and on Google didn't return what I needed. Below is my partition table:

Code:
/dev/hda
        #                    type name                 length   base     ( size )  system
/dev/hda1     Apple_partition_map Apple                    63 @ 1        ( 31.5k)  Partition map
/dev/hda2          Apple_Driver43 Macintosh                56 @ 64       ( 28.0k)  Driver 4.3
/dev/hda3          Apple_Driver43 Macintosh                56 @ 120      ( 28.0k)  Driver 4.3
/dev/hda4        Apple_Driver_ATA Macintosh                56 @ 176      ( 28.0k)  Unknown
/dev/hda5        Apple_Driver_ATA Macintosh                56 @ 232      ( 28.0k)  Unknown
/dev/hda6          Apple_FWDriver Macintosh               512 @ 288      (256.0k)  Unknown
/dev/hda7      Apple_Driver_IOKit Macintosh               512 @ 800      (256.0k)  Unknown
/dev/hda8           Apple_Patches Patch Partition         512 @ 1312     (256.0k)  Unknown
/dev/hda9              Apple_Free Extra                262144 @ 1824     (128.0M)  Free space
/dev/hda10              Apple_HFS Apple_HFS_Untitled_1 38807936 @ 263968   ( 18.5G)  HFS
/dev/hda11        Apple_Bootstrap bootstrap              1600 @ 39071904 (800.0k)  NewWorld bootblock
/dev/hda12        Apple_UNIX_SVR2 swap                 409600 @ 39073504 (200.0M)  Linux swap
/dev/hda13        Apple_UNIX_SVR2 root               38657056 @ 39483104 ( 18.4G)  Linux native

Block size=512, Number of Blocks=78140160
DeviceType=0x0, DeviceId=0x0
Drivers-
1: @ 64 for 23, type=0x1
2: @ 120 for 36, type=0xffff
3: @ 176 for 21, type=0x701
4: @ 232 for 34, type=0xf8ff


Is it hda7,8,9 or 10?

Also, on every boot, I get the following error messages:

Code:
ERROR: Problem starting needed services.
"bootmisc" was not started.

ERROR: Problem starting needed services.
"netmount" was not started.


Will I run into problems if these services don't start?

It's probably hda10 because this is the only partition that has a type of HFS, so you'll need to add this to your yaboot.conf to boot OSX:
Code:
macosx=/dev/hda10


It's probably your hostname not being set or your network not being started, check to see if there is another service that isn't starting before those.

Aye, you were right, thank you :)
