Now I try to boot on this partition. What is the openfirmwire command to do this
? I tried
0> boot fw:1,yaboot but it does not work...

Maybe you're trying the wrong partition number.  Try

	dir fw:1,\

to see if that is the case; if so, vary the number until
you found the right one (2 or 8 are nice tries).
