Ahh yes, I've seen that problem before.  I know it's a horrible suggestion but
the Fedora yaboto has quiet a few (netboot related) patches that haven't made
it into my devel branch yet.  You could grab that yaboot binary (or source) and
see if you have more luck.  I'll do my best to get my devel branch pushed out

Yours Tony
