What's the kernel version ? Perhaps you need the latest 2.6.25 series.

oh, maybe. It's an Ubuntu kernel.

Linux east 2.6.24-19-generic #1 SMP Wed Jun 18 14:43:41 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

Also, you can try adding video=efifb to the command line, does it show
kernel message ?

I'll try that soon, does it need any special customization of the kernel?

- appleloader always tells me "Model : Core Duo/Solo" and nothing else (no
matter whether I give it a parameter or not).  If I say "boot" nothing
happens, it just stays in GRUB prompt and I can enter more commands.
 (admittedly, I think I didn't *have* anything to boot in my CD drive, USB
or MBR)

The model is quite old, it's possible that it uses xom. Is there a
/System/Library/CoreServices/xom.efi in the OSX partition ?

only one year old :)))

No, there isn't.. the only .efi file in that directory is /System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi
