No, hda2 is your boot-partition (or maybe the root-partition) for Ubuntu
hda4 is the bootpartition (root-partition, rootfs) of slackintosh.

hda7 *is* your bootstrap partiton.. hda7 is where yaboot is installed.


If you boot your Mac, the OpenFirmware will look for boot-device or
pickup the first Apple_Bootstrap partition and execute the code
on this partition (hda7): This starts yaboot ..

Yaboot then loads the kernel from hda4 (BOOT partition) and starts
