You need a program to burn the iso image, it's not just a filesystem
copy. Perhaps Disk Copy will do it, if not then Toast or with a linux
machine, mkisofs. The iso has booting features which don't get copied
in a filesystem copy.

Nice chart! The powerpc doesn't use rescue.bin to boot, it uses
yaboot, linux.bin, and root.bin. And you're not looking for bf24, you
don't have a 386. Look in disks-powerpc, for a 2.4 kernel you want
new-powermac. If it's not there, maybe you got an i386 CD set instead
