I have a MacOS X 1.3 iso, but it wont boot.
These iso's where created by a cp /dev/cdrom cd.iso

The prom list this:
4 partition(s) found:
0. Show only bootable
1. partition 0 of 'cdrom0' (raw disk/raw)
2. partition 1 of 'cdrom0' (MRKS/Apple_partition_map)
3. partition 2 of 'cdrom0' (Toast 5.2.1
Partition/Apple_HFS)
4. partition 0 of 'disk0' (raw disk/raw)

and if i uncomment IO_PROM_FS_TRACE in src/debug/tracers.h
it outputs:
[IO/PROM/FS] New Apple partition map, (physical)

    The MRKS partition starts at 00000200 but the prom says it
    try's to start at 00000005, could that be the problem?

    Please try again from CVS (as soon as it works again) and
    post the new output.
