Hi list
Ive got a problem dual booting osX and ydl2.0, the yellowdog installer seems
to want to install the boot loader into osX bootpartition and not the one i
so i lose the choice to boot linux, i boot of off the rescue disc and mount
my root partition under /root, and edit yaboot.conf i think ive got
yaboot.conf setup ok, but when i run ybin or mkofboot i get a very similiar
mkofboot: ofpath could not be found,aborting
ybin: ofpath could not be found, aborting
hda12 is my boot partition i created during the ydl2.0 install, hd14 is my
linux root partition
if i try to use mkofboot -o hd:12
i get the above messages

What am i doing wrong ?
coz im booting of of the rescue CD i can read my man pages.
