Hello. I'm having some problems trying to boot OS X using yaboot (actually, it doesn't seem to work at all) However, yaboot is booting Gentoo with no problems.
I had tried using the yabootconf script, but I realized it didn't recognize my HFS partition (where OS X is installed) so I had to edit /etc/yaboot.conf manually.
This is what I have there:
Code:

boot=/dev/hda6
device=/pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/disk@0:
delay=5
defaultos=macosx
timeout=30
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot

image=/boot/kernel-2.6.10
label=linux
read-only
partition=2
root=/dev/hda2

macosx=/dev/hda3
enablecdboot

# /dev/hda2 is the one to be used as root.
# /dev/hda3 is an HFS partition where OS X is installed.
# /dev/hda6 is the bootstrap


Apparently everything is correct, but for some reason it's not booting OS X.
I'm starting to think the problem is I resized the HFS partition: I've been told this is quite risky but I wanted to try. Anyway, I still hope I can make this work somehow without having to reinstall everything.

Did this config work before?
I am not sure about the position of your bootstrap partition. Mine is at the beginning /dev/hda2.
Did you try to run your macosx-parition with mol after resizing?

How did you do the resizing? If it worked at the end, I would like to do this too.
OSX doesn't fit anymore to 3GB.

Hello. No, actually this is the first time I do this. I resized the partition using parted. I still don't know if everything's alright since, as you see, I'm not able to boot OS X.
What do you think I should do now? Use mol?

If you can boot into linux, can you still mount the HFS+ partition?

Just to tell everyone how I solved my problem, to sum up, the OS X partition needed to be repaired. I did this using OS X's "Disk Utility". More info here: http://crazy2k.dotgeek.org/comments.php?n=50

So you're saying, resizing is no problem with OSX' repair tool afterwards? Would be fine.

Actually, what I'm saying is that it worked for me. :)
