It sounds like you are new to both NetBSD & Unix. There is a lot you will gain from reading. Study the NetBSD documentation & go to a local library to find out what introductory books on Unix are available.

Inexperienced? Of course no! I already used NetBSD in x86 and I am user of Linux in this same architecture.

My problem is that after me to install NetBSD in my Ibook, he doesn't begin and yes, I already read the documentation and it didn't help me a lot.

I thought that in this forum, somebody that went by similar problems could help myself.

PS: Previously I had installed and initiate OpenBSD with success.

The mentioned procedure, for the installation of NetBSD in MacPPC, it is addressed for those that also possess MacOS and I have not been installing him. I don't know how to do the procedures there without having MacOS. Though, I would never know that I would have that complication type in PowerPC. For me the installation should be as in x86.

I don't also have as installing MacOS, because I don't have the installation CD.

If somebody has the solution for this, I will be very thankful.

I suspect the chances of anyone running NetBSD on PPC hardware on this site to be very slim (although I can be wrong...). My suggestion to you is to familiarize yourself with the archives of NetBSD's official port-macppc@ mailing list found at the following:

http://mail-index.netbsd.org/port-macppc/tindex.html

...as your subject may already have been discussed, & subscribe to the port-macppc@ maling list found at the following:

http://netbsd.org/mailinglists/#port-macppc

...to continue/start discussion. At least on that mailing list, you will be conversing with others with similar hardware & a similar goal.

Default Boot Loader

I think it might be a boot loader problem. Maybe your architecture requires a different boot loader. Have you tried booting with the install CD?

On the boot loader, I read something on having a partition HFS, but as I don't have MacOS, I am not able to create her and nor to format appropriately.

Seems that I should have that partition, but that intrigues me, because I wanted to use the whole disk in the installation and the boot loader should be in MBR.

Really, I don't understand this complexity in relation to installation of NetBSD in PowerPC. Already in x86 systems, the process is too simple. I posted my doubt in the mailing-list of NetBSD/macppc. I can only wait now for the answer, since I don't know more the that to do.
