If I modify the image by adding the yaboot.ibm boot loader by Open Suse 10 Enterprise beta for ppc I got there. I'm able to boot a kernel from install/powerpc, but not with an initrd image. When I try to use the initrd-image I got the same unexpected firmware error as with the stock yaboot. Without the initrd-image I run into the problem that the boooting stopps with not finding a root filesystem. The weird thing is that I could use the cd's from the Open Suse Enterprise 10.x beta and those boot and even install. On a RS/6000 with 2 two cpu's (h80?) the system installs the ppc64 without any major problems. I updated the firmware up to the recent version available at IBM. If I could be at further assistance do not hesitate to ask.
