Whenever I start up my iMac G5 (Running Intrepid) I get the regular apple startup gray screen, only instead of the mac logo it shows a small folder with a question mark in it. After this it switches to black and boots normally into Ubuntu. I suspect this is part of some startup program that didnt get wiped when i formatted the disk for linux, but does anyone know anything about this?

**for bonus points, let me know how to replace the question folder with a penguin**

When you say "G5" you mean a powerpc mac, correct?

in that case, you need to bless the linux partition and possibly sync the partition tables.
