I tried today's build (20090430) and the 'CD-ROM driver not found'
problem is fixed:


I was able to finish the install, but still got the
same other known problems:

(1) At kernel install:

  'No installable kernel was found in the defined APT sources'
  'base-installer: info: could not determine kernel flavor'

It should install the 64 bit powerpc kernel.

(2) At boot loader install:

  'No boot loader has been installed'
  'GRUB not yet usable on PowerPC systems'

It should create a /etc/yaboot.conf on the same partition that the
kernel was installed to, but nothing else is needed.  The petitboot
bootloader can read from vfat, ext2, ext3, and ext4 file systems.
