Did you convert completely, or partition? Also, the Ubuntu duel boot 
option assumes you're not going to do something crazy like partition a 
third disk with HFS and that you're not going to try to install anything 
else like SuZe. I went the partitioning root, learnt my lesson, sort of. 
Then I got into VMS, but got caught by the Macintel bug, sad to say. 
Now, I'm upgrading to VMware server, and sticking with one basic OS.

NO secret, really, just got Penguins popping out of my box right now, 
and they are all dancing around and around going, Squeak, Bah, humbug, 
bug. :)
