just as a follow up.. I left out a few parts of my installation. before I
attempted installing YDL I also installed a Core Mac OS 9.1 installation
on the 100mb HFS partition which I was planning to have yaboot installed
in (but currently don't have).

also.. when I booted off of the YDL screen, a white screen flashed for a
split second before the black screen. this white screen said "Calling
quiesce" in the top left hand corner.

i'm still unable to get the installation running. anyone have any
