I'd like to build and test nvidia 3d support for Gentoo on PPC. Is it possibe to be able to boot Linux from the 9th partition on My 2nd SATA drive? I use the second SATA for video editing, so I was going to shrink the 8th partion (OS/X volume) down add two parttions for Linux,
and boot Linux from that. I don't think firewire will be fast enough, will it?

Yes you can boot from there.

I don't really know if firewire would be fast enough to use as a root/swap device. I suspect that it would for command-line use cases, but not for yours.
