I haven't even left yet :-) 

What I saw was OK: the booter present as .hqx file, that's enough for now.
If anyone of the Mac users here is experienced with using mhybrid, please
have a look at the debian-cd script and suggest what changes need to be
made, and in what format (AppeDouble, CAP) the booter and the Penguin
Colors file need to be presented to mkhybrid to make them appear as 
unpacked valid Mac files on the HFS partition. If no solution can be
found, we'll stick to the .hqx files. Still better than giving the URL for
downloading :-)
