OK, so I interpret that message as meaning that the bootstrap
partition really hasn't been initialized. It's looking for an
hfs filesystem, and not finding any.
to be sure the bootstrap is where you think it is, and
that it's type Apple_Bootstrap. Double check your conf
file to be sure it's got all the right stuff in it:
Then use the same chroot commands as before, except substitute
'mkofboot' instead of 'ybin'. That should initialize the partition
and then install yaboot.
