You're close with suspecting that it's an fstab issue, but the issue is
actually that you haven't defined your root partition in the fstab. This
is set to a nonsense value of "/dev/ROOT" by default and it must be
changed before running yabootconfig. With the default partition layout
shown in the handbook, the root partition line would be changed to say
"/dev/hda3".

Hope that helps,
