    That looks to me like an Open Firmware command. What are you trying to accomplish?

    It's not a Unix command, so that's why Terminal doesn't know what to do.

    Are you trying to dual boot Linux and Mac OS?

    There is a lot of mac-fdisk information out there--Google is your friend.

    yes, i m trying to dual boot gentoo and OS X

    i am planning to have a good partition before the installation.

    yes, of course i did search on google, but all results are manual, some tips, but i don't even know where to start off?

    where do i type mac-fdisk to start ?

    the gentoo installation guide introduces me with the term, mac-fdisk, but it didn't tell where to type that command, it just says type mac-fdisk and do this, do that. but how? where?

    You most likely type it at the Gentoo shell. I believe that the shell loads automatically when you boot from the Gentoo CD (hold C or Option while rebooting).
