Is there a way to make a bootable CD using miBoot for oldworld machines?

I have a PMac 6500/300 and I wouldn't mind having one in case if something happens.

I've never gotten it working with newer (2.6+) kernels, but if you have suggestions, I'd be happy to look into it.

I'm using it with 2.6.23-r5 on mine. It works quite well.

I'd just like to build an install CD so I can pop it in and fire it up.

In that case, as far as I know, you just need a Mac formatted disk image, miboot works by pretending to be a MacOS system folder.

What about putting miBoot on a tiny HFS area on the CD and filling the rest with Gentoo?

I'll give this a try...
