Check out the installation manual's section on installing
from the hard disk. You'll place 4 files on your Mac partition,
then boot from OpenFirmware. Once in the installer, you can
use the partitioner's b command to create a bootstrap partition
and then the Make Hard Disk Bootable item to re-install yaboot
to the boot partition.
