You are correct about iMacs being new world machines, however, some of the information is still applicable. Though quick can be used on new world machines which allows you to entirely get rid of the Mac OS partition. The Kernel arguments for booting 2.6 series kernels I believe are still applicable though. Because the 2.6 kernel needs an initial Ramdisk to perform something though I forget what I found out after extensive research.
