I have my powerbook partioned like this:

hda10 - Mac OsX (blessed)
hda11 - Yaboot (blessed)
hda12 - Swap
hda13 - /

Both 10 and 11 are blessed so anytime the openfirmware gets reset (like whenever I remove the battery) the next boot will not even get to yaboot. It just starts up osx. I have to go in to openfirmware and tell it to boot from partition 11 then it will work normal, till next time. Is it posible to unbless partition 10 so that it would load yaboot everytime? would I stil be able to get into osx from yaboot?

A better idea might be to just move the partitions in the partition table. You can "move" apple partitions around with mac-fdisk. It doesn't actually change the location on disk, but it will change the order in the partition table. Since OF boots the first blessed partition it finds if the nvram is cleared, this would achieve the same goal but without unblessing your OSX partition.
