I followed the handbook explicitly. I did not make a /boot partition.
After compiling the kernel, I copied it to /boot/kernel-2.6.7.
Yabootconfig complained that /boot/kernel-2.6.7 w3as not a valid path, nor /usr/src/linux/vmlinux, nor usr/src/full kernel-name/vmlinux.
I made a manual yaboot.conf file following the example in the handbook and ran mkofboot -v.
mkmofboot asked if I wanted the bootstrap partition to be a HFS filesystem -- I said Yes.
When I get home this evening, I will try to boot again and send the last 5 or 6 lines before the freeze.
Further research into the details of yaboot seem to indicate that perhaps yaboot is working. Perhaps the problem is in the kernel or something.
Do I need to copy vmlinux to the root directory so that the path would be /vmlinux?
