From yaboot I choosed install2.2 (yaboot.conf paths slightly changed for
network booting).

Everything went fine, except I wasn't able to reboot the ibook from
within the installer. I unmounted manually and powered it off/on.
btw: is there something similar to CTRL-ALT-DEL on macs?

I now have finally a woody running on my new ibook.

thx
