Thanks, Betty, this *is* helpful.  What partition did you have Mandrake
install yaboot to?  [I've got a 75M partition 10 for /boot, some swap,
then the rest of the disk is / at partition 12.  Apple seems to like
partitions.]  And are the setenv arguments the same in all instances, or
might I have to change them if my partitions are different?  If you
could break down what that line does I think I'd have a better
understanding of what's going on with it.
