im sure it didn't because that --image line is totally bogus and will
never work.

thats because yaboot 0.9 in stable is broken.  yaboot 1.1.1 fixes that

what you need to do is is add --partition 11 to the mkofboot arguments
you used the first time.  and DON'T use --image /target/anything.

CDs, it doesn't really care it just likes to whine about it.

no it means the partition table on the CD is bogus, but still usable.
