Ok, I downloaded this file and got it all copied over correctly.  I
edited the os-chooser script to point to what I thought were the
correct drives.  I must be mistaken, sinced OF doesn't seem to want
to boot from the one I want.

If I boot into OF, then type 'boot' at the prompt, I get the
following error message:

boot load-size=196 adler32=2e0879a0

DEFAULT CATCH, code=70 at %SRR0: ff80b320  %SRR1:0000b030

Here's what I have for a os-chooser script:

iMac,1 PowerMac1,1 PowerBook1,1 PowerMac2,1 PowerMac3,1 PowerBook2,1
Linux/PPC Yaboot bootloader
" get-key-map" " keyboard" open-dev $call-method
dup 20 dump
5 + c@ 08 = if
" Booting MacOS ..." cr " boot ultra0:9,\\:tbxi" eval
" Booting Yaboot ..." cr " boot ultra0:10,\\yaboot" eval

As before, my MacOS partition is #9, and my boot partition is #10.
