First boot failure after successful installation

I installed YDL 4.0 on my iMac but realizing its only a 6 gig hardrive, I felt it best to initialize the hard drve and not hope for a partition. The personal edition of YDL 4.0 amounts to neary 4 gigs of space. I'm using 256k memory and I'm pretty sure the specs read that using the Linux only is best.
I don't miss anything and my machine runs great with just the Linux installed. the advantage I've gained is that Open Office serves as the same language for both my iBook which runs 10.2.8 and my 1999 iMac that's running YDL 4.0. I can burn discs from the iBook and they read on both machines.
Open Office is a much better word processing program that Apple works, you won't miss anything. But that is entirely up to you.

I have followed the YDL 4.1 installation guide and completed the
installation on a blue-and-white G3 machine
The list of partitions follows :-
Partition # Size MB Mount point
=========== ======= ===========
1 <1 Apple Disk map
2 1 Apple bootstrap
3 1024 Swap
4 7168 /
However, upon the first boot, it failed to boot to Linux and showed a
Monitor prompt "?"/Mac OS. After 10 - 15 seconds, the screen ran a list
What went wrong? I hope someone could point me reference how to make it
boot to Linux.
Thanks a lot.
