I finally managed to get hands on my PowerBook G3 and am now trying to
use your image. It boots well (oh yeah -- the olde CD-ROM drive
scratches itself to death) into yaboot but refuses to boot any further:

"cd:2,/install/powerpc/vmlinux: Unknown or corrupt filesystem"

This happens when I simply hit "Return" or enter "install-powerpc".

Currently, after I tried "expert", it seems to work...
<scratch, scratch>
"Please wait, loading kernel
    Elf32 kernel loaded...
Loading ramdisk...
ramdisk load failed !"

After that the OpenFirmware prompt appears, but the CD-ROM is still
scratching... odd.

Anyway, everything works fine under i386 :)

I'd be also interested in some more technical background :)
