Re: Boot INSTALLED system from CD?

can't be done with potato's yaboot, its manual image loading is broken.

I can get yaboot up from the distribution CD, stop it at the boot prompt (so it doesn?t run the installer, the system being already installed), but nothing seems to  work from there, all I get is a message about bad (or wrong, I forget) partition, try again...  (In fact it gives me that partition message even BEFORE the boot prompt.)  The system is installed on an external SCSI drive with no BIOS on the card, so I can?t boot from that drive and would like to boot from CD if I can.  In fact, I would like to  create a boot/rescue CD if I could so I don?t have to use the install CD forever, but I haven?t gotten any attempt at that to work yet either.  Any advice about any or all of this would be most appreciated.
