Hrm... you are trying to load yaboot and get that or is the error coming
from yaboot itself ?

In OF, if you do "printenv", what do you see for load-base and
load-size ?

You can also re-create your OF boot partition (boot from the rescue CD
for example, or put a vmlinux.elf-pmac zImage on your HFS partition and
boot from there) and then do "mkofboot" from linux.
