I just succeeded in building a dual-bootable i386/powerpc image. It's
just a combination of the i386 and powerpc netinst beta4 images and some
manual hacking in the Release file. You can find the image and the
script I used to burn the image on 


This probably needs some more testing, to be sure it is really bootable
on the majority of i386 and powerpc hardware.

If you are still interested in dual-boot images for LinuxTag I will try
to automate and improve this process.
