interesting, when i was testing various methods for making bootable
CDs for newworld systems i found that a fully partitioned CD (as
linuxppc 2000's is) simply would not mount under linux, no
incantations of -part or anything would make it work.  I also read a
rather long thread on the linuxppc-user archives of users complaining
that they could find no way to mount the linuxppc2000 cd under linux,
HFS or ISO format.
