<snip - yabootconfig fails during Debian installation, and other odd things relating to where hard drive is>

Interesting things from "devalias":

ide0    /pci/@d/mac-io/ata-3@20000
ide1 /pci/@d/pci-ata@1/ata-4@0
hd /pci/@d/pci-ata@1/ata-4@0/disk@0
cd /pci/@d/mac-io/ata-3@20000/disk@0
zip    /pci/@d/mac-io/ata-3@20000/disk@1

I'm totally stumped. I think you should forward this to submit@bugs.debian.org
on Package: yaboot to get some expert advice.

I just opened a G4, and two other G3 B&Ws; they all have the hard drive and CDROM drive connected backwards to how my G3 is connected (as concerns which drive is connected to which bus). Tomorrow I'll reroute my drive cables and see what the result is.

Oh yeah, thats it then. then you should be able to use hd:

All right! Swapping the drive cables around made all the difference in the world.

Interesting that someone who had the box before me would do that. Oh well, lesssons learned.

Thanks for all the help!
