This was covered in the release notes. They have not added this yet.

The release notes also stated that YaST is not currently able to partition drives on the PPC yet. You have to partition them on either an Intel machine or a system that already has a Linux OS on it like Yellow Dog.

As for the colors, I had a simillar problem on my system. When I used SaX2's default config, it was ok.

Remember, this is pre-release software, so some stuff doesn't work yet.
