    PowerPC 7455 933MHz single core.
    Powermac g4 Quicksilver 2002
    Hda has Linux on it with:
    p1 APM
    p2 hfs BootBlock 800k
    p3 ext3fs~98G
    p4 swap.1G

    hdb has three sections with hdb 3-9 failing to initiate.
    hdb 11 to 17 see part below,

    Extra space.

    320G for hdb

    1.5 G ram.

    Boot image will show in OFW boot select screen.

    READ_DMA48 failure from hdb11- FreeBSD / : UFS2.

    I/O read failure occurs 75 - 80% of time. Read failure from bootblocks occurs more often.

    If needed, I can add the dmesg and Xorg.0.logs to this post. They will contain boot up and paths.
    There is a discrepancy of path unknown- appears as question marks from the Xorg.0.log.
