I think this is a known parted bug can you try with:
Take the updates.img and use dd to write it to a USB key, then use
that with "linux updates" at the yaboot boot: prompt.
You will need to dd it to the entire device,
so make sure you backup whatever may be on the USB drive first.
You can dosomething like this:
dd if=updates.img of=/dev/sda
Replace /dev/sda with the name of your USB key drive, though.
You can also try FC5 next week.
