OK, thanks very much for the testing. As I suggested a while back, I
don't see a useful way for the m-a netinst to continue with powerpc
support. I'm going to drop that and make it just amd64/i386 from this
point forward, unless anybody has any bright ideas for an alternative.

That'll also mean that the m-a netinst should work as an isohybrid
image then; previously it was impossible due to conflicts in the space
needed for both Mac and PC booting (sector 0).
