Under Apple MacOS 9 (hfs+) there are 8 required partitions for the

AppleBoot lable on partition 9 and the rest of the standard install
into /dev/hda10 (/boot), /dev/hda11 (swap), and /dev/hda12 (/)
Is there a way to get the partitions onto the disk and not have to
have the 8 "required" Apple labels? This is an old iMac with the
firewire MoBo; I have re-installed from scratch now about 11 times and
I cannot see any other way to get it to work.
I used to have some 7xxx oldeworlde Powermacs on which I removed all
Apple partitions and installed Debian. There was no problem in that
regard with the firmware.
