Thanks for the rapid reply to my iMac boot problem.
Armed with the new knowledge that it is yaboot and I have been typing
yahboot I had another go in Open Firmware.
I made very sure I typed "boot hd:2,yaboot" this time, and I waited, and
Still didn't work.
Tonight when I get in from work I will re-install yet again and see if
I may be way off the mark, but I believe yaboot is generally used from
an HFS partition (but not HFS+). However, partition 2 would not be an
appropriate partition on which to find yaboot (because an HFS partition
would require driver partitions in the lower-numbered partitions).
It's been several weeks since I've done my only install on a Mac, so my
memory may be rusty, but I believe the above is accurate.
