It's not something I do often but I normally boot into OSX (10.2) and
then change the start up disk to the OS9 Folder. My G4 then boots into
OS9 bypassing yaboot.  I think from memory I have to reset the PRAM to 
get back to yaboot prompt when rebooting.

I am sure you can also include OS9 as a boot option in yaboot but I've
not done it 'cos I don't use it enough to be concerned.
