Thanks. Is there any specify reason why you aren't using grub-install?

Yes - it's a known working method. I know that it worked that way on the Power 
Mac G5,
so I first tried it that way on the Xserve G4. That to be sure no errors are 
by another method of installation.

I understand. But please understand that we want to integrate the GRUB 
into debian-installer using the grub-installer script [1]. Thus, we should not
deviate too much from the installation mechanism used on other architectures.

FWIW, you can modify the script in /usr/bin/grub-installer while the 
session is running. Then you can make the necessary modifications until the 
works by just selecting the GRUB option from the menu item.

Then we can just diff your modified grub-installer script against the currently
packaged version and eventually apply the patch necessary to make the GRUB
installation work on PPC/PPC64 (Mac).
