whats wrong with yellowdog? anyways if you want to switch to Debian or Gentoo you can do it without a reinstall (old binaries may be overwritten, but conf files will be ok). for debian use debootstrap, for gentoo just untar a portage snapshot to /usr and start emerging :)
a buddy recently gave up on installing debian or gentoo and went with yellowdog, due to the finickynness of yaboot/miboot/quik/bootX and the patch partitions, miniature boot partitions etc... so a 'live upgrade' to one of the above distro is what i'd recommend..
