To be honest this isn't yaboot but the first stage boot chooser script
in forth and it's pretty trivial to do. Do you want the boot script
installed on the machine or net booted?

Again you're not really installing the yaboot binary but a chooser
script. If I give you a copy of  a script and install instructions,
plus netboot guidelines for the ltsp setup are you able to test it
