try to boot by holding down apple+ALT+O+F,
this will boot into Open Firmware.
if you will be curious about what you see there,
read the apple-tech infos about Open Firmware.
if you now on which partition your yaboot is located,
just type boot hda:9,yaboot <--- it should work on the first
partition (ata disk)
ok, if you have green text on black screen now, that was working fine.
if you need some more advice this may bee a good url:
about the latest version of yaboot:
i still try to use the yaboot0_9,
found on that page, but without success.
yaboot0_4 was the only version running on my cube.
another tip, if you modify the yaboot.conf, do it with
bbedit or another editor, which is able to read unix-files.
good luck at all
