Are there somewhere debian-installer images with yaboot as bootloader

You could check snapshot.debian.org for older debian-installer images
sure whether they get mirrored there) but that won't help you as you
build working CD images using an old debian-installer image as the
version would mismatch with the one in the archive mirror and the
would complain about being unable to load kernel modules from CD.
Also, you would have to revert all changes in debian-cd that switched
the code from Yaboot to GRUB. And if you fixed that, you will also have
re-add the packages "yaboot" and "yaboot-installer" to the archive
And then you will probably run into the problem that the "yaboot"
will no longer build as it depends on an outdated version of ext2. And
when you fixed that, you need to revert the changes to partman-ext3
included a work-around for Yaboot as it doesn't support modern ext4
At this point, you will have gone done through so many rabbit holes,
you will be much better off by just fixing ofpathname so it supports
OpenFirmware path names found on PowerMacs , then update
