You probably have "nonvram" in your yaboot.conf file.  This option
prevents ybin from resetting the boot-device variable that Startup Disk
changed.  Remove that line from /etc/yaboot.conf and then run ybin.

You can also fix this problem by zapping your PRAM.  Hold down cmd-opt-p-r
at startup until the machine has chimed twice.  As long as your bootstrap
partition is the first bootable volume, the menu will be restored.
