Hi, I'm trying to install YDL on my B&W G3 (rev1) and I'm having very wierd
1. i have a dedicated HD to YDL but it still forces me to use pdisk instead
of disk druid
2. it won't let me save the partition map (device busy), but if I quit and
then go back in, the map appears to be correct.
3. the install then seems to go fine, but as it reboots into linux, i see
messages about extfs2 (or something like that ) is read only. then it says
"starting system logging:" and that's about it. I have to restart the
machine at this point. Which then causes another wierd error. On the macos
side, my modem isn't seen. I actually have to open my case and reseat the
cable from the modem to the motherboard for it to work. very wierd.

Any ideas?
