Andy Beal of Search Engine Lowdown stated that Yahoo! made the switch from Google to Inktomi. Earlier today I was still seeing Google results on Yahoo!, but am now seeing Inktomi.
A couple of my moderator buds over at SearchGuild are still seeing Google, but this is by far the largest scale testing of Inktomi Yahoo! has done. Most likely they are just finalizing the roll out.
Frames are bad for SEO
The new Yahoo! Slurp page states "Yahoo! Slurp follows HREF links. It does not follow SRC links. This means that Yahoo! Slurp does not retrieve or index individual frames referred to by SRC links." Make sure you use noframes tags on framed websites if you want traffic from Yahoo.
