Description of problem:
I've installed fedora on a G5-bi, and there was no probleme during installation.
but i can't boot on fedora. as i reboot, i press the [alt] key so that fireware
shows me the system installed. He shows me the mac os x system and the linux
system. But when i select linux, yaboot loads but after 3-5s return on system
selection of firmware. But then the system selection doesn't have its right
color anymore, and nothing works, i can only move my mouse. to do anything, i
need to restart.
My partition map:
Sda -> [|macOSx(hfs+)|]
Sdb -> [|bootStrap|-|data(hfs+)|-| /(ext3)|]

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora
2. Reboot
3. Presse alt key on boot
4. Select linux système (hard disque picture with tux)
5. wait 3s 
Actual results:
No boot on G5-dual

Expected results:
Boot on G5-dual

Additional info:
I remove the Sda disk and i got the same result. I will try to reinstall with
juste one disque but right now i don't have the time...

I'm not sur is duplicate...
Because on bug 174762 he can't boot on yaboot and boots always on mac os x, for
me I boot first in yaboot but after short time i return on firmware (menu with
bootable partitions) but it's freez.
How can I test is now ok?
