/initrd is usually a link to a file, just like /vmlinuz. Typically you
will have /initrd -> /boot/initrd.img-2.6.8-* and so on. This is
something the kernel installer will typically do for you.

I would suggest that you edit yaboot.conf so that the initrd parameter
points to the actual file (/boot/initrd.img.-*) that goes with the
kernel you are trying and see if you can boot.
