254The Pegasos partition layout is quite simple compared to the Apple layouts. 254The IBM PowerPC Reference Platform (PReP) requires a small PReP boot partition
255The first partition is a Boot Partition, which contains kernels to be booted, 255on the disk's first partition, followed by the swap and root partitions.
256along with an OpenFirmware script that presents a menu on boot. After the boot
257partition, the usual Linux filesystems are placed, according to the scheme
258below. The swap partition is a temporary storage place for when your system
259runs out of physical memory. The root partition will contain the filesystem
260that Gentoo is installed on.
