Well, that depends what you mean by boot. If you mean load yaboot and a kernel,
then yes, most certainly. That's what I do. You just replace "hd:" with
"zip:" and you're all set.

sawtooth regardless of the media.

Get yaboot, setup your yaboot.conf, get the kernel, and get the necessary
install files (ramdisk, etc...)
