Woody's yaboot is not new enough to work on G4s and G5s.  You need the
newest yaboot from penguinppc.org. In fact, I'm not sure it's been
tested with G5s yet.  

According to Nick Lopez in a post on this list less than a week ago
(didn't you already search the archives?), the kernel "hasn't survived
contact witha G5 yet". Also, the powerpc kernel developer BenH hasn't
gotten access to a G5 yet, so it's unlikely to work until he does.
