IIRC this is the powerpc CD he's referring to.

A few comments before I burn the image and reboot:

1. /tools contains i386 tools, rather unneeded

2. No *.icon for the cdrom (disk.info was it?), the install or the doc

3. install/amiga/StartInstall* scripts:

  - No "ramdisk_size=16384" (ramdisk is 15361024 byte big)
  - '-k linux.bin' should read '-k vmlinuz'
  - '-r root.bin' should read '-r ../root.bin' (unix style path) or
    '-r /root.bin' (AmigaOS style path)
  - missing 'devfs=mount' or is that mounted on boot by default on amiga?
  - nolangchooser in StartInstall but not the others

  amiboot-5.6 -d -k vmlinuz -r ../root.bin root=/dev/ram ramdisk_size=16384 devfs=mount nolangchooser

4. minimum ram requirement to just boot seems to be >32MB, thats just
   the ramdisk and the copy of it in tmpfs. Not counting the installer
