You can boot off the network, using VNC, by issuing such an entry in /etc/yaboot.conf: Now looking at it now (after this thread has continued) I know realize it seems to be in the format that can be passed to the boot options.... So assuming that is true it would be: <snip> default linux prompt 0 timeout 0 display boot.msg F1 boot.msg F2 options.msg F3 general.msg F4 param.msg F5 rescue.msg F7 snake.msg label linux kernel vmlinuz append initrd=initrd.img ramdisk_size=8192 vnc vncconnect=pigdog.example.com headless ip=dhcp ksdevice=eth0 method=cdrom lang=en_US keymap=us <snip> I just did not find that example clear in the way they referenced it.
