No, if you're running OS X off of it, it's HFS+. OS X doesn't support
HFS as a boot volume. Did you try putting the option in, rerunning
'ybin', and booting?

No, that assumes classic MacOS, so it searches the volume for the 'Mac
OS ROM' file that classic MacOS starts from.

Yes, because the Forth bootscript that ybin generates and blesses is
what puts up the multiboot menu - yaboot itself just loads Linux
