I want to install Gentoo PPC in QEMU, but am too ignorant to understand how to boot the minimal live CD.

if you are looking for a chroot, you could do the following :

otherwise just use qemu to load the livecd and do a normal install.
I hope you understand that both are going to be very slow.

cheers

I can't figure out how to get yaboot to load the kernel. There's some sort of command I have to type in.

If you still want to try

mount the cd get from it /boot/apple and /boot/apple.igz
unmount
then boot qemu with:
qemu-system-ppc -kernel apple -initrd apple.igz -append "cdroot root=/dev/ram0 init=linuxrc loop=image.squashfs looptype=squashfs console=tty0 video=ofonly" -hdb /dev/cdrom
Don't use the -cdrom option as it seems to not work with it

(it should work with any cd, but just in case: I've used old gentoo cd from 2007 I had around)

What FS is the CD? ISO9660?

I've just done:
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
If it does not work it may mean that you need to compile kernel with mac partition support
