I'm not John but I can tell you that he probably did not want
/dev/sda4. I sent him the path as an example with the warning that it
would not match hist disk partitions and so on. Stupid me, I forgot
emphasize the need to customize it by replacing the '4' with what he
needed. I use /dev/sda4 as a small test partition that I can boot or
chroot into.

Probably a warning to use bootx if my experience is anything to go
by. yaboot from sid really needs to get into etch to support us SATA
