Yes, the rev 4 Potato PPC ISO is broken. The rev 3 ISO, on the other hand,
is bootable, so yes, you should be able to boot from it. I guess Woody CDs
can be generated, but you have to have an already-working system to do it
from. You could netboot it instead (with BOOTP/DHCP and a TFTP server)
from a Woody kernel and RAMdisk image - I have done this with an iMac
(just testing it).
