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.

First check 

mac-fdisk -l

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:

nano-tiny /target/etc/yaboot.conf

Then use the same chroot commands as before, except substitute
'mkofboot' instead of 'ybin'. That should initialize the partition
and then install yaboot.
