I found a solution for my problem. The problem was that the bootstrap
partition was in the end of the HD. I cheated and created ext3 and
swap first, and then bootstrap. So, bootstrap was still hda5 but was
phisically between swap and HFS+ partition.
Thanks for your help,

Well, i did my first attempt and as i said before, i got error
formating. So i rebooted and tried another option, such as automatic
partition, and it returns the error "Attempt to read sectors 16-18
outside of partition on /dev/hda". I ignore this and try to proceed.
Every attempt to change partition(creation, delete) returns this
error. I keep ignoring this ... I select the software to install, etc
... But when anaconda asks about the 4 CD's and i agree to continue,
it shows that error message 2 times, and another saying. "An error
occurred trying to format hda5. This problem is serious, and the
install cannot continue." And then give me only an option to reboot.
hda5 is apple bootstrap when i tried to partition it manually. I
created a 1 mb bootstrap, 640mb swap and the rest is an ext3 partition
/. If i try to do the automatic one, the same error occurs ...

Thanks for your attention,
