Bootable CDROM

Bootable CDROM image (macppccd.iso) at:
ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/1.5.2/
ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/1.6.1/macppccd.iso

Burning

MacOS Toast
  1. Open the `Format' menu and pick `Disk Image'
  2. Click the ``Data...'' button and select the disk image you downloaded.
  3. Click the ``Write CD...'' button
on Unix/cdrecord
Example with SCSI-id(2) CD-R,
cdrecord -v speed=1 dev=0,2,0 -data macppccd.iso

MacOS B's Gold
With older version of B's Gold,
I needed mode change while using B's Gold (USB) version of CD-R software on MacOS. After putting the iso file onto ISO image area, double click it and change from CDROM XA to mode 1.
