So you apparently have one of the dual-ide bus machines, and for some reason ide0 is your main hard drive rather than hd.

Try creating the yaboot.conf from the earlier message in /target/etc/
and give ybin a shot (in the chroot).

ybin complained about the "light-cyan", so I changed it to "cyan".

Then ybin complained quite a bit:

/proc filesystem is not mounted; nvram will not be updated
unable to find OpenFirmware path for boot=/dev/hde6
 and similar message for other partitions.

Do I need to crack the case and check out jumpers and cables on the hard drives or something, like I'd do on the i386 architecture?
