I did not. Is this required with yaboot? If it is it's my mistake
totally. It's not required with grub which is what I'm used to using
on x86 machines.

I can see that running ybin -v has an impact on the bootstrap partition:

MacMini etc # ybin -v
ybin: Finding OpenFirmware device path to `/dev/hda2'...
ybin: Installing first stage bootstrap /usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot onto /dev/hda2...
ybin: Installing primary bootstrap /usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot onto /dev/hda2...
ybin: Installing /etc/yaboot.conf onto /dev/hda2...
ybin: Setting attributes on ofboot...
ybin: Setting attributes on yaboot...
ybin: Setting attributes on yaboot.conf...
ybin: Blessing /dev/hda2 with Holy Penguin Pee...
ybin: Updating OpenFirmware boot-device variable in nvram...
MacMini etc #

I cannot reboot and try it right now as the machine is doing some
work. I'll try it later today and let you know how it goes. I suspect
this might fix it.

Once I get this done then I'll strip out a bunch of the leftover stuff
from the kernel config and try to slim stuff down a bit.

Thanks for all your help!

Cheers,
Mark
