jessie powermac yboot: ybin fails

# ybin
ofpath: Device: /dev/ata-ST is not supported
ybin: Unable to determine OpenFirmware path for macosx=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST340015A_5LA13M03-part10 macosx=/dev/hda10
ybin: Try specifying the real OpenFirmware path for macosx=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST340015A_5LA13M03-part10 macosx=/dev/hda10 in /etc/yaboot.conf

I tried to add cmdline options via /etc/yaboot.conf, but as above, ybin fails. I've
looked at https://www.debian.org/ports/powerpc/inst/yaboot-howto/index.en.html#contents
over and over, and the yaboot.conf and ybin man pages, and cannot figure out which
partition is the OpenFirmware path that I apparently need to give ybin with the -o
option. Can anyone see from what follows what it would be, or tell me how to find it,
or what else I'm missing? Is the partition labeled bootstrap (sda13) the same as the
OpenFirmware partition?
