Read under the OSX part. Yes, you have to make the FIRST partition less than 8GB. As long as the first (Boot) partition is less than 8GB, you can make the other any size you want. All the old iMacs from Revision A (233 Mhz to Rev D 333Mhz) require the less than 8GB boot partition.

"If you have a hard drive over 8 GB in size, you must partition it, and the partition containing OS X must be completely within the first 8 GB of space or you will not be able to run OS X. (If you are creating the partition within OS X, it must be 7.45 GB or smaller as reported by Disk Utility, because sometimes a GB is billion bytes and sometimes it's 1,073,741,824 bytes."
