 Austin, Thanks a million! That was certainly part of my problem. The
other part was in my Open Firmware boot-device setting. I simply had to
remove the '\\:' before yaboot, and everything worked smoothly (well, it
booted anyway). I still suspect something strang in terms of the Firmware
(I think OSX patched it in some way) as this machine takes much longer to
boot. It is actually a lot faster if I boot up into OF and boot it
manually. Strange.

 Thanks again! My machine is up and running.



P.S. If you are ever come to Montreal, look me up, I owe you a beer. :-)
