Are you talking about the -M command line option? 

I tried to use but I got nothing.... 


clementino:~# ybin -M -v
ybin: Interrupt caught ... exiting

clementino:~# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Tainted: P

clementino:~# uname -a

And I  hear something (again my  information are poor,  sorry) about a
little bug in yaboot/ybin using them on kernels with hfs support built
like module. 

P.S. : this is the best kernel  I got for my iBook old version because
       this the only problem. All the other features are going good.
