Can we avoid the new ISOs?
The name of the kernel to load is passed to the bootloader, isn't it?
So even if the CD would not boot by default, it could be made to manually
boot by dropping to OF and doing some settings?
Or maybe the bootloader can figure it out and do some name magic, maybe
restricted to the loader in the HFS part?
