Package: debian-install (d-i)
Version: 20050630

I downloaded and burned the iso file obove:
$ cdrecord -dev=/dev/cdrw -v -data debian-31r0a-powerpc-binary-1.iso

Starting the IBM 7025-F50 into OpenFirmware ok prompt and then:
OF> boot cdrom:1,\install\yaboot
yaboot says, that /etc/yaboot.conf couldn't be opened.
So /etc/yaboot.conf is missing on CD/ISO.

Furthermore, burning the obove .iso with cdrecord (see above) ISO-Level 1
(8.3 files) are used:
OF> dir cdrom:\install

I resolved this 8.3 issue by adding the option -l to mkisofs (see
d-i/installer/build/config/powerpc.cfg, line 50).

Now, with the new .iso "boot cdrom:1,\install\yaboot works, but in
yaboot.conf there is the line device=cd: - my F50 OpenFirmware don't know
cd: but only cdrom:. So, I created a new devalias in OpenFirmware and let
yaboot.conf/device=cd: untouched:
OF> devalias cd /pci@fef00000/scsi@c/sd@4,0
OF> boot cd:1,\install\yaboot

Summary of my workarounds for F50 (CHRP):
1. add /etc/yaboot.conf
2. add -l to mkisofs
3. add to installation doc: OF> devalias cd ...
