You should enter following code at the time of yaboot prompt.
Linux 1

It will ask for the root password. Entering that you have to download
Code:
xorg.conf file for iBook of yours. 
wget http://mac.linux.be/files/xorg/ibook6.txt
mv ibook6.txt /etc/X11/xorg.conf
press Ctrl + D in order to continue with booting.

You have to use the arrow keys in order to scroll it. you have to hit the Tab key in order to select Ok and Press enter.
You have to run below mentioned code
