your macos= entry is wrong.  the OF boot command mac-boot just reloads
my menu when a command there fails, eventually it decides this program
is bogus and starts searching for other partitions to boot.  thats why
it works after you keep hitting it. 

check your partition table and set macos= to the correct partition.

fix your /etc/yaboot.conf
