error trying to boot on a pismo
I happily took deliver of my new pismo today, so am of course working at
installing debian on it.
I have as far as I can tell followed the yaboot faq from ethan benson 's
website. Yet get an error.
The error is
I get past the thing where I choose to click on the penguin and the arrow,
and it then gets to the menu with l m or c, I press l or just let it go to
default (linux) and it now has on the screen
Welcome to yaboot version 0.9

I have no idea what could be causing this. I cant think wherelese to look,

am using the debian install stuff from original potato, though I downloaded
and installed newer debs of yaboot and powerpc-utils from the debian mirror,
latest potato stuff.
my current yaboot.conf is
I dont have macos installed currently, but thought I should give it a 2 GB

there were originally no where near that many partitions, but after booting
off the macos install cd and playing with the disk changing utility for a
bit, it added all those or something. I eventually noticed I couldnt get an
800 KB partitioon in the macos thing, so I added two partins from macos, one
big one and the two GB one at the end, and then before installing macos I
rebooteed off the debian cd and started trying to get it installed.
So would anyone know what I should try to get debian to boot with the above
