(I assume you mean /install) Yeah, that should work.  Do TOS and MacOS
automatically show directory icons for directories without an icon

OK.  I think the mkhybrid stuff makes the entire disc readable as HFS
for Macs and ISO9660/RockRidge for everyone else.  But I'll
double-check (I suppose I should be able to mount the disc image as a
hfs volume to check the HFS access... remind me to add hfs support to
my kernel).

I dunno when this will be ready for testing... I'm currently trying to
get the entire binary-m68k tree sucked down my 56k modem overnights
using rsync; I'm currently most of the way through libs.  Hopefully
I'll be ready to burn a CD or two (I'm guessing that I'll need two for
all of the m68k packages) by the end of the week at the latest.
