Re: yaboot vs MacOS 9.2.2
I just updated to 9.2.2 for the heck of it (never boot into it anymore)
and I don't see the problem that you just reported. My partition is of
type Apple_Boostrap as the ya* doc recommends, and, as Chris mentioned,
it doesn't mount under Mac OS.
BTW, Ethan is the new maintainer for the Yaboot package.

It appears that starting with MacOS 9.2.2, the damn thing is deblessing
the bootstrap files so that yaboot no longer starts up. For example
on my machine, I find that
no longer works after MacOS 9.2.2 has been booted and I am forced to
either run ybin again to rebless the bootstrap or use
Unfortunately the later isn't really a solution because it seems to
short-circuit yaboots use of the boot menus which I still want.
BenH can modify yaboot so that it will provide the boot menus when
invoked as above. This is so annoying as I just got done reformatting
my drive last month to put back the MacOS drivers on my slave drive
since their absence caused MacOS X 10.1 to continually query if I
to initialize the linux slave drive. The joys of triple booting. Ugh.
If you make an Apple_Bootstrap partition as recommended in the yaboot
install docs, MacOS will not get a chance to de-bless it, it's not
