 I investigated the same topic, but failed so far. It seems you need to
create the standard ISO filesystem (ie. using mkisofs) and then prepend
or better integrate a "standard" SUN diskblock to make the CD look like
a hard drive for the Boot ROM.

 If you get any further instructions or help, please let me know.
