mmm... if i understand correctly, you have not modified the 
/etc/yaboot.config file.

so, open a terminal and write:

	% sudo pico /etc/yaboot.config

edit the line



exit and save pressing "Ctrl-x" and "y"

now write:
	% sudo ybin


now you can reboot the machine and you will see to boot it in OSX. But 
you will abe to boot in Linux pressing L at the black screen with the 
question about witch OS you want to run.
