Are you shure the 6nnn hardware plattform is supported by Yellowdog?
I couldn't find it on the 'supported hardware' list on 
http://penguinppc.org/projects/hw/pmac.shtml. I have Linux running on my
G4 (Debian - just because i'm so used to it :) but never even tried to install
it on an old 6ish PPC (isn't that still NUBUS architecture ?).
