If you've got the ubuntu install CD boot from that, then hit 'tab' at
the yaboot prompt. There is an image called rescue (or something very
like that) - it starts off for all the world like a fresh install (e.g.
gets a dhcp address), then asks you which partition you want to rescue.
'vim' is on there, but on my iBook it couldn't find a terminfo file and
dropped back to 'ascii' which makes line inserts/deletes amusing. but I
managed to fix the damage I'd done to yaboot.conf, so it is usable.
