drops back to System Management menu and the boot options there too do
not recognize any bootable devices apart from CD-ROM and NICs.
Previously there was AIX5 on the disk and it seemed it was completely
repartitioned by the installer.
On your system, YaST probably just used the whole disk. I've never
used any of the POWER systems so I can't really help.
SLED 11(SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) would likely have better
support for your hardware. It is $50 a year for updates & stuff, but
it would at least have all the security patches that openSUSE 11.1
doesn't get anymore.
There is also the Evergreen project:
which should theoretically have the possibility for a fairly updated
11.1 system. However, I'm not sure how well 11.1/ppc is supported or
if there are any ppc users helping out with the project. Evergreen is
using the SLE 11 kernel.
