You won't have a bootable system, that's for sure; the "Apple_Bootstrap"
partition (which should really only be 800K) needs to contain a
filesystem that OpenFirmware knows (yaboot uses HFS via hfsutils) for
loading the bootstrap. OF doesn't know any Linux-specific filesystems,
so you definitely won't be able to boot from it. Did you make a separate
bootstrap partition for yaboot's use? If not, you need one.
