I tried this one out on my iMac, but didn't get too far.  The boot
stops right after finding and mounting the ramdisk image; it says
Warning: console cannot be opened.

I noticed that the vmlinux you have on the site downloaded to my
machine in text/plain format. Do you think that might corrupt it?  The
images on the debian ftp server are named *.bin so that programs
download them in binary format.

I didn't try it by netbooting, but instead by putting the files
(vmlinux, yaboot, yaboot.conf, net-initrd.gz) on an hfs partition
and then pointing OpenFirmware to them directly: 

boot hd:10,yaboot

Will the net-initrd.gz work in this case?
