You may not have a pram problem or scratched disk. This same thing
happened to me on my Pismo w/ Apple DVD drive. I am unable to boot
off any YDL OR Mac OS disk. I suspect it is something to do with the
mucking about we've done (and I've done a lot) in that yaboot file.
Probably powerbook specific because you are the first to mention it.
