Does the hard disk installed currently have a readable filesystem (HFS
or FAT)??

Instead of trying to boot from the optical drive, it might be worth
copying ofwboot.xcf & a gzipped kernel to the disk & trying to boot from
there via openfirmware:

boot hd:,\ofwboot.xcf netbsd.gz

I'm using a re-writable CD to burn the macppc iso files and have not
tried a DVD.
