I have what looks like the same problem for a long time too. While I
would love to know the solution, I have been living with the following

- boot into open firmware, 
- type 'boot hd:2,yaboot'
   (changing the number to the # of your boot partition)
- now I get a working menu of linux boot options

No other combination of steps boots my dualG5 despite many attempts. 
Hope this helps in the meantime!
