Yaboot requires OpenFirmware, which is not present on most PReP machines.
My 140, which is PReP but has OF, still wouldn't work as the critical
OF methods to read from disk didn't work, despite me trying very hard
to get them working....

So, I think we can safely say yaboot is CHRP only (Mac and RS/6000).
