Indeed.  Could you just tell me if it booted from CD automatically?
There are a couple of issues here:

1. CD images must be built with the -U option to work on RS6K firmware.
2. yaboot needs to be stamped (via ybin) with the note section.
3. The /ppc/bootinfo.txt needs to be created to use autoboot.

I guess I can raise a bug for these once I've confirmed that autoboot
from CD is working for you.
