can't burn bootable Mac os X cd in Linux..


I'm trying to make a bootable CD of Mac os X to use as a rescue/utility boot disk. I have a Powerbook G4, with DVD/CD reader drive, and a linux tower with a DVD-reader/CD-RW drive. I've so far been unable to make bootable CDs in the linux burner, but if I mount the image in OS X, System Preferences show it as bootable. (Made so by using the 'bless' command in os X terminal.) Also, I am using X-CD-Roast which displays a cd icon with a red slash through it, indicating (i guess) that xcdroast doesn't recognize this format. I can mount the (mac os X) cd image if I type
Code:
mount -o loop -t hfs imagefile.iso /tmp/mountpoint
it mounts, with the HFS part of the disk showing up (the "where did my files go" file). But I guess I need HFS+ support, which I don't have right now..

Is there a way to make this work?

Very interesting idea. Should be doable. http://www.maconlinux.org/news.html http://www.yellowdoglinux.com/support/solutions/ http://librenix.com/?inode=3554 Maybe in one of these...

I've used YDL (and thus MoL), but my problem is this: My Linux box which is x86, and thus will not run YDL or Mac-on-Linux, has the cd burner. My powerbook, which does not have a burner, will and has run both YDL and MoL, .. see the split?

Ah, yeah I see that little bit of irony. Maybe you have to borrow someone's burner, how annoying.
