Quick answer to myself:

I started a live CD (Ubuntu 6.10, live.debian.net does not seems to
support powerpc yet) and tried to move the partition with gparted.
Interstingly, it does not manage to move the partition neither, but it
accepts to redimention it to the right. I then copied it and deleted the
original to install Etch instead. Everything now works fine (except
display problems), and yaboot manages to start the cloned osX partition.

Have a nice day,
