Do you get anything by pressing ctrl-alt-backspace?

Here is my yaboot.conf
Quote:
## Example yaboot.conf for ybin and yaboot >= 0.6
## see man yaboot.conf for more details.

## Change `unconfigured' to your bootstrap partition eg: /dev/hda2
boot=/dev/sda2

## device is the OpenFirmware device path to the disk containing
## kernel images. if your disk is /dev/hda you can find the
## OpenFirmware path by running the command: ofpath /dev/hda DO NOT
## specify a partition number for this! On IBM hardware you can
## generally comment this out.

device=/dev/sda

## partition is the partition number where the kernel images are
## located. The kernel images should be on your root filesystem, so
## this is usually the same partition number as your root filesystem.
## so if root = /dev/hda3 (the 3rd partition) then you should have
## partition=3 This *MUST* be set correct or yaboot won't boot! This
## option can be either set globally as shown here, or per image in
## the image= sections

partition=4

## delay is the amount of time in seconds the dual boot menu (if one
## is configured, by the presense of macos, macosx, etc options here)
## will wait before choosing the default OS (GNU/Linux or the value of
## defaultos=). If you omit this then the value of timeout=
## (converted to seconds) will be used.

delay=10

## timeout is the amount of time in tenths of a second that yaboot
## will wait before booting the default kernel image (the first image=
## section in this config file or the value of default=).

timeout=40
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot
ofboot=/dev/sda

## Change the default colors, fgcolor is the text color, bgcolor is
## the screen background color. (default: fgcolor=white, bgcolor=black)
#fgcolor=black
#bgcolor=green

## Password supplied in plaintext, required for yaboot to boot, unless
## restricted is also present (see below). Be sure to
## chmod 600 /etc/yaboot.conf if you set this!

#password=secret

## Password supplied as an md5 hash, see above

#password=$1$saltstrg$HnJ/gcM3oKhNbnzUPgXTD/

## A password is only required to boot an image specified here if
## parameters are specified on the command line or if the user enters
## an image is not specified in the configuration file at all (ie.
## arbitrary file load). restricted can also be placed in an image
## section in that case any image not including the restricted keyword
## will be fully password protected.

#restricted

## image is the kernel itself, commonly kept in / but also commonly
## found in /boot. Note that /boot should generally not be its own
## partition on powerpcs, its not necessary and complicates things.
## Make sure /boot is on the partition specified by partition= see
## above. /boot should never be an HFS filesystem. You may point
## image= to a symbolic link so long as the symlink does not cross
## partition boundries.

image=/boot/kernel-2.6.12-Gentoo-r6
label=Linux-2.6.12-Gentoo-r6
root=/dev/sda4
read-only

image=/usr/src/linux/vmlinux
label=Linux.old
root=/dev/sda4
read-only

macosx=sda3



Can you find any mistake?

My Mac does nothing when i press ctrl-alt-backspace.
