Description of problem:
I'm trying to install Fedora Core 4 on a MAC G-5 (dual processor, 1 gig main memory) coresident with 
MAC OS X Tiger (10.4)

The basic problem is that I cannot get the disk partitioned so that installation can proceed.

Here are the details:

Using Volume works the following partitions are found:

  Apple_Bootstrap: 1.0 MB
  Apple_UNIX_SVR2: 100.0 MB
  Apple_Free: 27.0 MB
/dev/dosk0s3 (OS X HD)
  Apple_HFS: 76.21GB
  Linux_LVM: 76.34 GB
