Prepare the disk
First I had to modify the parition table of the disk. The free partition
was already defined, but had the wrong type, as I had used them as HFS
partition before. To be usable by Linux it must have type
Apple_UNIX_SVR2. So I deleted the partition and recreated it with the
new values. While doing this I also changed the names of some other
partitions. Here the commands for doing it. On the first line the call
of pdisk(8), then the commands given to pdisk.
Here you can see the resulting parition table and
how it was before the changes.
n 8 Swap
n 9 LinuxPPC
n 10 Reserve
C 11p 2132400 Linux Apple_UNIX_SVR2
As next step the partition must be formatted. That's done with the
mke2fs(8) command. A simple
did the job. Now I could mount the disk
mount /dev/hda11 /mnt
and start with putting stuff on it.
