It is a 160gb SATA drive that came from a G5 PowerMac. According to sundown, I need to have the amigaboot.of file on a small FFS (maybe FFS2 will work as well) formatted partition. then I will need a System: partition that I will probably format with SFS, or SFS2. Finally I will use the rest of the drive as a Work: partition with either SFS, SFS2, or JXFS as the file system. First place I am looking is the X1000_CFE.pdf, as it has info about how the X1000 boots up and loads OS4.x, so it might have some info regarding installing OS4.x on a hard drive.
You can save the current RDB, so if needed you can you restore it late if needed.
From memory, yours should be set up;

FFS/07, 100MB (with amigaboot.of),
SFS/02, 2GB (with OS on it),
SFS/02, 800GB (WORK, empty),
Remainder of drive left for future linux install.

Yeah, and I posted how to do this, so you can just copy your current partitions exactly.
