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...

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!
