For what it’s worth, here is the /etc/yaboot.conf on my PowerMac G5 that has both OSX and Debian Sid

rbthomas@kmac:~$ cat /etc/yaboot.conf
## yaboot.conf generated by debian-installer
##
## run: "man yaboot.conf" for details. Do not make changes until you have!!
## see also: /usr/share/doc/yaboot/examples for example configurations.

## For a dual-boot menu, add one or more of:
## bsd=/dev/hdaX, macos=/dev/hdaY, macosx=/dev/hdaZ
