i assume you ran ybin -v after you changed yaboot.conf ?

also maybe try video=radeonfb:1024x768 without the bit depth or  
frequency

i would remove vga from the kernel, its kinda useless ( at least will  
be once you figure the is out, right now it is being used as a fall  
back)

no idea

yes, i do believe that it is progressive and interlaced.  you do not  
need to specify that in yaboot.conf

i found the file that explained that once, forgot where it is and  
wish i could remember!  i want to know myself.
