So it'd be helpful if you give the make and model of the h/w - looking
up the Firmware version that seems to be an IBM Power6 machine of some

Can you capture the console output of a boot with a yaboot built with DEBUG=1

What is boot-device set to and what do you see on the network in terms
of bootp/tftp traffic?
