After talking w/some friends running PPC and YDL.. there was problems
after upgrading to OS9. We speculated that linux can't read the new
MBB or some part of the drive changed after the update. The only fix
we came up with was to use a MacOS8.5 or 8.6 install disk and
'update' the drivers back down to one of these. After that, linux
could see the partitions again. Hope this helps.
