Yes, we prepend a volume header to the ISO. I don't realy care if the kernel
is in the volume header or the ISO part as long as it just works, but
adjusting the available libsa ISO9660 support to find the iso part of the
CD behind the volume header should be very simple and this makes the whole
solution more flexible - now that we have accelerated X support, imagine
a NetBSD destkop CD booting on O2 ;-}

        Woo.. NetBSD/sgimips live cd :)
