Well, yaboot itself should have no problem. However, the ybin script
that automagically finds the right OF path might indeed still be busted,
it will have to be updated I'm afraid as it's more/less hard coded to
know about IDE gunk

I'll have a look. The new yaboot maintainer (Tony Breeds) happens to sit
2 cubicles away from me at work so it shouldn't be a huge deal.

Thanks for reminding me tho !
