OK, "enter it in combo box" . . . don't know if I recall seeing that . . .
and then question remains as to what I would  type . . . as per Peter's


I hadn't gathered the full sense of "doom" on this one until reading your
comments . . . I had blithely assumed that I could "run the install again"
. . . but, since I must have messed up with no "ybin" and I can't boot the
DVD with the "c" key or using Yaboot selection . . . it will probably be
hard to try to run an install again . . . .

So, you've mentioned this open firmware but what would I do or type in open
firmware to recover the appended Yaboot conf file?

Or, you are saying Yaboot does offer "recovery"???  So, when I pressed
"tab" key the only option I saw was "Linux old" . . . .  I tried that but,
nothing.  Can I type "recovery" after I press L in Yaboot?

The other errors I had written from memory and I don't recall what they are
or were . . . probably another day or so before I get back to the "linux on
iBook" project . . . .  Indeed as you mentioned 12.04 had no problems
installing on it and needed no Xorg.conf file and nothing appended to
Yaboot.conf file . . . it just installed simple and fast.
