For the -drive part you're not specifying the unit number/bus so QEMU will simply start from zero and plug the drives in sequentially. I don't think this will match the aliases for hd and cd in the device tree.

Have a look at some of the examples on the wiki at https://wiki.qemu.org/Documentation/Platforms/PowerPC to see how this is done.

Note that all of the -hda/-hdb/-hdc/-hdc and -drive parameters are now deprecated in favour of -blockdev but they will work for now.

-*boot once=d*,menu=on \

The boot once option isn't supported by OpenBIOS. Just used -boot c for the hard disk or -boot d for the CDROM.

Why are you using a non-default network card? The sungem NIC as found in a real Mac has been the default for years now.
