Hopefully someone else answered.  If not...

The best thing would be to go through the boot-floppies sources.  What
you want is the miboot stuff -- most of the logic for that is in
powerpc-specials/ subdir.

Sorry I don't have time to explain it in depth to you, and that we
don't really have heavy documentation internally for this.
