Hi, ...

Since i am going to reinstalll the XServe G5 which went broken last week, i
investigated why i couldn't boot from CD.

It happens that the generated mini.iso files (powerpc64/netboot), are broken,
and are missing the needed magic to make them autoboot. At least on chrp
boxes. I am nto fully sure, and i will try booting the image from disk, but i
guess this is the problem. It used to work like a month ago, so i don't know
what happened here.

Colin, you are the expert on this, can you investigate ?
