I don't believe such a disc exists for PowerPC. You might try a linux
livecd like finnix-ppc which was what I used, as it has GNU Parted which
_will_ set up your partitions properly.
Alternatively you could boot into OSX with installer disc 1 and use the
Disk Utility. It doesn't matter what type of partition is what just as
long as you have that small HFS one (which the dd image will take care
Then just sysinstall as normal.
Happy BSDing on your mac!
