It was the second URL in my post:
http://grub.enbug.org/TestingOnPowerPC

This takes you through the process step by step.  It installs it
alongside yaboot, and you can then run from OpenFirmware, and/or use
OpenFirmware to change the default from yaboot.

(NB. Print the "Booting" section out onto paper, or write it out by
hand, so that you can manually boot the system should things screw up.
This is also handy when re-enabling yaboot.)

Roger
