Well, yaboot did not manage to get the kernel over the 
"returning 00010000  from prom_init" line... Loading the kernel image 
directly from OpenFirmware instead of yaboot gives one an easy start but 
is not as easily manageable as with yaboot. Of course, I could set up a 
FAT formatted /boot partition and tell OpenFirmware which kernel image to 
load. A better solution is, however, to fix yaboot... ;-)
