I have progress of sorts in that it will now boot into OSX (without

Still the same error message when you don't hold the option key?
No it boots straight into OSX
After frigging around with yaboot.conf for a while, I downloaded the
latest version of yaboot (1.3.8-rc4) and bingo! Works straight out of
the box! I even managed a black on green yaboot screen so I know it's
working - cool ;-)
There was a recent revision of yaboot having something to do
with G4s ... the Windtunnel and XServe models. First, try
downloading the most recent yaboot from penguinppc.org/projects/yaboot
to see if that fixes the problem.
Thanks Chris ;-) (and everyone else who pitched in)
My G4 is at least a couple of years old (Sawtooth?) AGP Gigabit - so it
seems that quite a few G4's may have the same problem. The testing
version of yaboot seems to be the answer.
