    where to install the bootloader on a powerbook g4


    My friend installed Gentoo onto his Mac notebook, specifically the PowerBook G4. However, the boot loader won't work because Apple has a strange partitioning system. I was wondering where to install the boot loader so he could dual boot OS X and Gentoo, and with what settings. Thanks.

    Are you using a PPC port? If not you will not be able to do this.

    If you follow the Gentoo handbook for ppc, this is discussed and completely detailed.
