Try something like

boot hd:,yaboot_0.5

which is what works for yaboot-0.4 on my sawtooth's HFS+ partition. 'Course, my
HFS partition is at the start of the drive, so this may not work. Apparently,
your HFS_Bootstrap partition is at the start of the disk, so it might work. OF
is weird, so you never know.
