Description of problem:
I have an imac 333 with the newworld rom. When I try to boot from the first fc4-test1 CD, the system hangs before it even starts yaboot. It shows a system folder icon on the screen and promptly halts with that icon appearing.

Booting from the boot.iso burned to a CD works though.

I checked the sha1sums and they're a match. I also burned disc one from iso image, so there shouldn't be any boot issues there.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with ppc fc4-test1 disc1
2. Watch system hang with a system folder icon.

This is known for test1 and I _think_ should be fixed in test2.
