well i will need more info then that.  your the first to report
trouble out of many people using both ybin and the firmware update.  i
also have access to a new silver G4 which runs debian, and ybin, it
boots without any problems at all using the first stage script.  it
has firmware 4.21 so if apple added an anti-ybin routine to OF they
skipped it for all the newwer versions of OF after 4.18.

you can simply remove the `magicboot=' line from your /etc/yaboot.conf
and ybin won't install a first stage.  but like i said that doesn't
work on most machines.
