Good news: It boots automatically

Bad news : At end,the install said there was not stuff for booting 
automatically from HD this hardware and that I have to boot /boot/vmlinux on 
/dev/sda1 whith argument root=/dev/sda1.

I  tried from OF boot disk;:/boot/vmlinux root=/dev/sda1  with no success 
(return to prompt after accessing HD a little)

May I have to boot yaboot from cd ?  and after ??? I should read yaboot man 
page, don't I  ?
