Ok... So I tried mkisofs on DragonFly and now I have an even more
useless CD image :).
I used mkisofs -o bootimage.iso -hfs -part -l -J -r -L
I don't know why that doesn't work... I was closer to success with
hdiutil's makehybrid command.
I almost had it working on a netboot at one point via TFTP but I can't
mess with my network to do that right now.
I wonder if it would boot from an iPod :)
