As Martin mentioned, this is a known limitation of the pre-release ISO
installer images. I've just added references to this where the OFW
error message is discussed in our documentation. It probably needs to
also appear somewhere more prominent (suggestions are welcome).
To boot 9-BETA, you'd need to have the boot loader located somewhere
other than an installer CD-ROM, e.g. on the primary bootable HFS
partition on the machine. Then you could do something like this:
boot hd:,\ofwboot.xcf cd:,\netbsd.macppc
(I can assure you that this issue aside, 9-BETA and HEAD do work, as
I've been testing them for months on more than one machine.)
Thanks for helping to test NetBSD/macppc!
