In this stage I'm still with problems, so I'm booting my machine
from the networks only.  I'll appreciate any comments about
the syntoms:

0 > boot disk |
/pci@fef00000/scsi@c/sd@0,0:-1,/etc/yaboot.conf: Unknown or corrupt
Can't open config file
Welcome to yaboot version 1.3.6
Enter "help" to get some basic usage information

The partition looks like -1, but I tryed differents ways helped
by "help" yaboot command without success.

My /etc/yaboot.conf file looks like:

device=/pci@fef00000/scsi@c/@0:  # Got by ofpath /dev/sda


/vmlinux is the same image used to boot by net that I copied

The only differce with your howto belong to my patitioning:

debian:/home/gpoo# fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 64 heads, 32 sectors, 17501 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *         1         1      1008   41  PPC PReP Boot
/dev/sda2             9       130    124928   82  Linux swap
/dev/sda3           131     17501  17787904    5  Extended
/dev/sda5           131       416    292848   83  Linux
/dev/sda6           417       702    292848   83  Linux
/dev/sda7           703      1942   1269744   83  Linux
/dev/sda8          1943      2896    976880   83  Linux
/dev/sda9         16548     17501    976880   83  Linux

Me root partition is /dev/sda5 and it's a logical partition.
(I'll try repartitioning to primary partition).

Thanks in advance for any pointer or comments.
