Well, you mean it only refuses to boot when you insert the disk and old
the 'c' key ? Does yaboot show up ? I guess not, is the iso HFS blessed
or some other magic ? 

Also, i doubt it will work out of the box on old world, Robert, what is
the kernel size, and could you include a miboot image of this if it is
small enough ? Not sure the kernel or initrd fit on a floppy though.

David have you tried booting it on the oldworld with bootx ?
