OK, the first screen on startup says 'Boot Stage 1:', and it is waiting for either "l"-Linux, "x"-Mac OS X, or "c"-CD-ROM. It will not accept anything except one of tose options. On the next screen that says "Boot:", I typed "defaultos=macosx" (without the quotes of course). It returns:

/pci at f2000000/pcibridge/mac-io at 7/ata-4 at 1f000/disk at 1:3, //defaultos=macosx: no such file or directory.

Any ideas?
