Well, "can't OPEN" means something didn't exist. Which, according to
your 'ls' output later, makes perfect sense.
Surprisingly if i type "boot yaboot,hd:3" starts something that i dont have time
to read but stops in a screen with a denial symbol in the middle, a circle with
a diagonal bar, like in some street's signs!
Because that's nonsensical, so it tried a default boot, I believe.
There's no device or device alias 'yaboot', so it doesn't know what
you're talking about.
Maybe some other info will catch your attention or will clinch the matter:-)

Well, the problem is that your 'yaboot' is named 'yaboot.txt'. However,
you should specify an absolute path, like 'boot hd:3,\yaboot.txt'. Try
that and see if it works (it should).
