You mean it's not there on the CD in the powermac folder?

Actually, if you've got the install done, you don't need it any more. That
contains the root ramdisk for the installer, it's the same as root.bin.

When you're ready to boot your installed system from BootX, just un-check
the ramdisk checkbox and add root=/dev/hdax to the kernel boot arguments,
where /dev/hdax should be the linux path to your root partition.
