CDROM booting issues for Linux on Sparc

What is the issue that makes booting Linux from a CDROM on Sparc
so complicated?  I'm told by Jörg Schilling that mkisofs from
cdrtools can make a CD that boots Solaris just fine.  He points
out that SILO "misbehaves", but as yet I don't know what that
mishaviour actually is.

What will it take to make a CDROM that can boot Linux on Sparc
without modifying mkisofs?  Or can someone show that this is
not the case?

I want to get this long problem resolved once and for all, but
with so many people holding back on information, it has been so
far hard to do.  Does anyone here have information that they are
willing to share on the matter?
