Thanks to Glasoe for your reminding and helpful links.
Yast install for PPC really can partition hard drive automaticly now. We can use default partition settings or change it as what we want.

Thanks Carl for paying more attention to solve the problem. The link you providing is really well.

I have installed OpenSUSE on JS20 successfully. To solve the issue I met, we should not install bootloader in the process of setup.

First, we should change the default setting about bootloader. In Yast main menu Booting->Boot loader Installation, we sleet Do not Install any Boot Loader.
Then, I used the default settings for hard disk partition without any changes.
After that, Yast will copy packages of CD1 to hard disk and reboot system.

Because we did not install Bootloader, So we need CD1 to boot system after reboot.
Enter installtion interface again, Yast will show one dialog box in Step 4, ask us we want to Installation or Update or Others operation.
We choose item Others ->Boot the Installed System to boot system has been installed on disk.
Yast will ask you to insert CD2, CD3, ......CD5.

Once packages are copied, we will enter the system and need create /etc/lilo.conf and run "lilo" to install Yaboot.
The steps described by me could be found from this link,
