What happens in that script? I guess it puts some kind of rescue image into
the first blocks, like i386 images are made bootable? I am pretty sure
Amiga and Ataris can not boot from CD (there is amigalilo, but its not
packaged and it doenst help for CDs). Not sure about Macs, but you still
need MacOS to start linux. Some VMEs might boot from CD, no idea if that was
ever tested.
