Trouble setting up ppc laptop as dual boot


I am unable to setup my laptop as a dual boot environment. I am running Mandrake 10.1 for ppc on a 12 notebook with no other problems but am unable to boot into the default OS X.
My partitions are as follows:

hda1 apple_partition_map 31KB
hda2 apple_bootstrap 1MB
hda3 / ext3 5.6GB
hda4 swap swap 1GB
hda5 / home ext3 24GB
hda6 OS X Apple_HFS 24GB

.........................................................................................

The output from my /etc/yaboot.conf file is:

default="vmlinuz-rs6k"
init-message="\nWelcome to Mandrakelinux!\n"
boot=/dev/hda2
ofboot=/pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/disk@0:2
delay=30
timeout=50
defaultos=macos
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot
enablecdboot
enableofboot
image=/pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/disk@0:3,/boot/vmlinuz-rs6k-2.6.8.1-12.2mdk

initrd=/pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/disk@0:3,/boot/initrd-rs6k-2.6.8.1-12.2mdk.img
append=" resume=/dev/hda4"

append=" failsafe resume=/dev/hda4"
read-only
macos=/pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/disk@0:4

.................................................................................................... .........................................

Not sure what to alter in order to rectify problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Change macos=/pci@f4000000/ata-6@d/disk@0:4 to macosx=/dev/hda6 and run ybin.
