I have no idea, but I experienced the same thing once, without doing
anything special. IIRC OSX hanged once or twice in a row in the bootup
process and just after that I lost the yaboot menu.

I solved my problem by booting on the ubuntu CD and at a shell prompt:
	mount your root partition (mount /dev/hdaX /mnt) with X being the
number of your root partition
	chroot onto that partition (chroot /mnt)
	reinstall yaboot (ybin -v)

That should do it.
