Yaboot doesn't open on startup, just boots into OS 9.


I installed Mandrake 9.1 effeciently, I used mac-fdisk to bake a bootstrap partition, all was well.

I have a 3 gig partition for OS 9, and left the other as "Free Space" for Mandrake. Then i booted from a gentoo linux cd and used the "mac-fdisk" utility to make an 800k bootstrap partition. All was well.

Booted from the Mandrake CD, install was flawless, I didn't even have to partition anything it did it all for me, .

Install finished.

So, i rebooted, and expected to see the yaboot command line asking to start into the mac os or Mandrake linux.

Nope, it just booted into OS 9.

SO, i took my gentoo CD and booted from that to check the partitions, used mac-fdisk and checked that all partitions were there, they were.

I can't boot into yaboot, help!
