I had similar problems years ago when I tried to add a new drive to my existing OSX setup (running
on a beige G3). I have had *no* issues with Panther, Tiger, and YDL (multiple versions) existing
on my dual G5. I've got a custom version of ybin that lets me have multiple (currently 2) different
OS X versions. I'd sent this customized ybin to both TSS and the yaboot folks a couple of years ago.
I believe what other folks have said is correct, the directions are in the YDL manual, and start with
using the OS X 'disk utility' to partition whatever disk you will be installing YDL on. This keeps OS X

Subject: Re: [ydl-gen] How to have YDL and Leopard coexist
A 'Mirrored Drive Door' mac refers to a model of Powermac tower with a
shiny front bezel. It was available with 1 or 2 processors at speeds
IIRC from 1.0 to 1.25 GHz. Even Apple refers to them as MDD macs.
A bit more info-
the partitions are Apple_UNIX_SVR2 but Leopard still complains via a
dialog box at boot time about an
unknown disk partition - could it be the swap partition for YDL???
Is there no one out there who runs YDL 6 and MacOSX in my
configuration? The Suse people have figured out how to coexist quite
nicely in this configuration but their release has some other serious
issues I've hit.
I think I'll go back to MacOSX Server and leave the Linux stuff for
the quad core Xenon people.
