I just made 2 unofficial CDs available[1].  Each has a sha512sum

One includes yaboot_1.3.13a-1squeeze1 and the other one includes

Both include packages with needed PowerPC fixes for Squeeze:
  * linux-kernel-di-powerpc-2.6_1.74;
  * yaboot-installer_1.1.19;
  * os-prober_1.42;
  * rootskel_1.93.

Please test both of them and tell us about it.
If yaboot_1.3.13a-1squeeze1 does not work on some IBM pSeries, it is
quite possible that yaboot_1.3.16-2 will and we might be able to get
it into Squeeze[3].
