I just did this part:

exit # this will exit the chroot
# mount --rbind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
# mount --rbind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
# chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
# /usr/sbin/env-update && source /etc/profile

I read that I needed to do a manual yaboot config because I used genkernel.

So I went here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc.xml?part=1&chap=10#yabootconfig

I typed: emerge yaboot

then: exit

then: yabootconfig --chroot /mnt/gentoo

and it said: yaboot: command not found

So now I'm stuck...

I'm just trying to finish the install asap, does anyone know what I need to do? thanx

Can you enter the chroot and perform the steps from in there (make sure /dev and /proc are bind mounted like you had them)?

Probably you take out the --chroot option then. I've never done yaboot but basically you would be doing the steps as if you were (re)installing yaboot from within an existing install.
