I'm using the PPC Livecd to boot a machine, and from there I would like to pull a stage4 tarball from another Mac. My experiences with x86 in the past, I instinctively tried to mount a samba share, but the cd does not have the smbfs module. Is there any way to use afp to mount a network share?

Thanks.

How about just scp'ing the file between the machines?

I would have done that, but the hard drive on the target machine is barely big enough for the image, much less 2 copies (one zipped, one unzipped).

I ended up just mounting it via nfs. It seems to be working out alright, so we'll see.

While I'm at it, here's a slightly different yet similar question: if I were to use Disk Utility (OS X) to create a DVD/CD Master (.cdr) image and share that via nfs, could I use the Gentoo cd to cat the image onto the target drive? Would that make a functional, bootable OS X installation? Sidenote: I apologize, as this is not really a Gentoo question...just thought maybe someone in these fin forums would know.
