Re: PowerPC bootdisks for potato release.

i used toast to create a bootable image, but didn't let it optimize so
there's a lot of free space in the hfs partition.

now i can loop-mount it under linux (hfs finds the right partition in the
image to mount) to fix up the content and i don't have to use toast again
(this part does need to be verified)

because this (mostly unpopulated) 640M image is 14M bzip2'ed, it won't be
difficult to put it on the cd for future use.

the only disadvantage is that the recursion is making my brain hurt.
