Most likely, yaboot's installer couldn't correctly determine
the OpenFirmware path to the bootstrap partition.
Boot back into the installer, open a shell, and check
Compare the boot-device setting to what you get from

nvsetenv boot-device hd:2,\\:tbxi
This tells OpenFirmware to look on the second partition of the main
hard disk for a blessed startup file.
