Apple use a boot mechanism called EFI. Linux support for EFI is patchy (at
least when last I checked). Apple's Bootcamp utility installs an MBR and the
various bits required to boot non-EFI systems such as Windows and Linux.
The rEFIt utility also has tools for setting up an MBR and booting non-EFI
systems. It's probably the way to go.
Both need to be installed from within OSX.
