In that time the yaboot loader was in /dev/hd8 - The
MacOS side (inside the system folder with the
yaboot.conf and the vmlinux file) ... the thing is
that now I am trying to do it the right way !!!.

somethig like this in the yaboot.conf ? ...

boot=/dev/hda6 //bootstrap partition
partition=8 // linux partition - number 7 for swap

Where do I have to copy the yaboot loader and the
yaboot.conf file ?  ... Do I have to copy just the
kernel in the linux partition (/dev/hda8)?.
