From debian-powerpc email list:

If your powerbook have Starup Manager (i.e. boot with alt/option pressed shows graphical boot disc selection) and you want to have Debian grub here, you have to do this steps:
- log to terminal as root:
# lsblk
- you see here line with something like: "sda2 8:2 0 122.1M 0 part /boot/grub" - this is your grub partition
# hmount /dev/sda2
# hpwd
- you see "untitled:" or similar
# hattrib -t tbxi -c UNIX untitled:System:Library:CoreServices:BootX
# hattrib -b untitled:System:Library:CoreServices:

and during next reboot press 'alt' and you see grub here.
