RE: Can't read or boot from Squeeze 6.0.4 [ppc] disk 1 on Original iMac
Actually, the cd writer is a usb peripheral, but the cd tray drive has always been able to read disks I've burnt using that.
I'm not even sure if it can read dvds.

That's interesting. So you have a CD writer on tray loading iMac. I
didn't know they existed. That makes the problem even harder to
understand: CD writers should be able to read CD-R's.
The CD's format should be standard ISO9660. Flashing OF can hardly
help. Perhaps flashing CD drive's firmware...
I would try with another CD-R brand...
