I did work with Benjamin to install linuxPPC on my G4 sawtooth.
I have formated my ide disk like this.

If you can re-format your hard-drive, use the apple tool to initialize
1- Put a HFS+ partition for your Mac OS
2- Put a A/UX root (yes root not swap) for your linux swap (512 MB for
3- Put a A/UX swap(yes swap not root) for your linux native (at least
4- Put another A/UX swap for data ...
Then, your install (Yellow Dog) will recognize all your partitions and
need to use fdisk (which did not seem to work correctly).
