boot the iMac to the open firmware prompt

run the command:
 boot  hd:0,yaboot

There's no partition 0, _ever_, with an Apple partition map. It doesn't exist. You should do 'boot hd:,\\yaboot' instead. Not specifying a partition number will cause it to search for a volume with a filesystem it knows, and \\ tells it "look in the blessed directory" - which trust me, is important...
