Fedora Core 4 Test 1 shipped with this bug.

The ISO boots, but yaboot can't load the kernel as yaboot.conf is missing.

Workaround (really messy):

- from OS-X create a small (100mb?) hfs (not hfs+) partition; make a note of the
parition number (how I'm not sure :-)

- from OS-X copy the contents of the 64-bit boot iso (in particular ppc/mac64/
vmlinuz, yaboot, and ramdisk.image.gz) to that disk (at the top level)

- from OS-X copy from the 32-bit ISO the file ppc/mac/yaboot.conf to the top level

- edit the copied yaboot.conf so that paths such as:
are replaced with simpler
(or is that)
(where 2 is that partition number)

- reboot machine, during <boing> hold down <apple><option><o><f>
(don't try doing this when using a microsoft keyboard :-/)

- at the OK> prompt enter
    boot hd:<PARTNUMBER>,yaboot
    boot hd:2,\yaboot
from the OK> prompt you can actually fish for that yaboot image vis:
    boot hd:1,\yaboot
    boot hd:2,\yaboot

- continue as normal
