My partition table looks like this...
Disk geometry for /dev/sda: 0.000-239372.437 megabytes
Disk label type: mac
Minor Start End Filesystem Name Flags
1 0.000 0.031 Apple
2 0.031 1.031 hfs untitled boot
3 1.031 220001.031 ext3 untitled
4 220001.031 222049.031 hfs swap swap
5 222049.031 239372.437 ext3 untitled
sda5 was originally free space, used as the root partition for the rawhide
installation I just attempted; hda3 was not part of that system.
The resulting /etc/yaboot.conf written by the installer contained this line:
This causes ybin/mkofboot to be slightly unhappy, and also the boot-device
environment variable seems to have been set to hd:4, instead of hd:2.
Do you have the install logs handy?
"boot=/dev/sda2 /dev/sda4" looks like booty thinks it's setting up a raid1
device for /boot, which is obviously really strange given what you've said here.
They didn't seem wonderfully enlightening, which is why I didn't attach them.

No kidding, they don't seem enlightening at all.
Seems to be a parted bug. It's detecting my swap partition as 'hfs', as shown in
the original report. If I swapoff and then zero the partition, then mkswap and
swapon again, parted no longer reports it as hfs; it reports it as swap.
Hm, no. Another rawhide install gave me a yaboot.conf saying
'boot=/dev/sda2 /dev/sda4' and turned my swap partition into HFS again.
Still happening in FC5t3.
Fixed in booty 0.78-1
Python keeps target list after for loop so we were getting duplicate entries.
This reworks the logic so we avoid that.
