Modified Files:
        src/share/man/man8/man8.macppc: ofwboot.8

Log Message:
Update misc ofwboot(8) descriptions.

- add examples how to boot USB flash containing bootable CD ISO
- also add notes how to check a device path of USB flash
- no need to specify a name of "netbsd.macppc" because ofwboot(8)
  searches "netbsd", "netbsd.gz", and "netbsd.macppc" by default
- describe about partition "zero" required on booting via raw ofwboot
- no need to specify boot-file (i.e. ofwboot.xcf) on booting from CD
  on Open Firmware 1 or 2 machines that use the partition "zero" method
- remove leftover of ancient release number of NetBSD "1.5"
- add "CLAIM failed" case in ERROR section
- add notes that it's recommended to restart Open Firmware by
  "reset-all" command if got any Open Firmware errors
- add links to "NetBSD/macppc Partitioning HOW-TO" and
  "NetBSD/macppc Model Support" in the SEE ALSO section
- use https for links also use instead of
  obsolete ftp:
- avoid newlines in boot-device and boot-file argument descriptions
- consistently use "\" in the boot-file paths
- consistently use "CD-ROM" rather than "CDROM"
- remove an obsolete commented out block
- bump date
