I would go into rescue mode, go to a console, and chroot into the
installed system, and there hand-install the right kernel (and remove
the other one). for yaboot, you can either simply run ybin, which should
do the right thing if yaboot-installer did his job correctly, or use the
rescue menu item.

If the d-i folk had not been so much preocuped with their witch-hunt,
this kind of problems would not be happening.
