I can boot from FFSv2 just fine on macppc using ofboot.  No HFS partition 
needed!  Not sure how else you can boot PPC.

On the mac68k front, if I had the time, I'd like to take some ideas from the 
EMILE Linux bootloader (which uses a custom boot block to boot 68k Linux 
straight from a floppy or, with somewhat more limited success, SCSI) to make a 
BSD bootloader.  Ideally one where you don't have to build a bootloader image 
with the kernel file included, but something that'll boot from bare metal would 
be nice.
