I'm halfway trough the installation of gentoo on my oldworld mac when I did some mistakes with the HD. I must tell you that I have NO earlier experience with MAC so when I got the machine I wanted to install linux on it!

My problem is that I did not know that I had to dualboot with MAC OS so I deleted ALL partitions and made 3 new one, like I would have with an x86 system. (the Apple_partition_map what does it do?, anyway now it's gone :(

hda1 /boot (with no filesystem yet)
hda2 swap
hda3 / etx3

I have chroot into my HD so I have most the basic OS on my hda3 already!
I have heard of Quik Bootloader and want to try that one!
So from where I stand right now, what partitions is necessary for Quik/Linux and can I recreate them without destroying hda3?

If you have a second Mac you can copy over the data.

Did you have any luck with this?

I'm afraid I did the same thing, but now I can't get the install of OS9 to start. It requires a CD install, and I can't boot from CD unless I have an OS on the machine....

This is the only Mac I have.
