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.
