What I do in this situation is:

1) enter open firmware (reboot holding Command-Option-O-F)
2) at prompt enter: boot hd: X, yaboot
   where 'X' is your yaboot partition (in my case is '2').
3) Now yaboot must appear 'normally', I select boot linux.
4) When linux givs me the promtp I then execute: ybin -v
   this reinstalls the boot partition in OF.

I've repeated this process whenever I had to reinstall OS-X.
