FAQ: Creating sparc bootable CD. [OpenBSD31]

I've seen several references to this request, with well documented
results. (http://www.geocrawler.com/archives/3/260/1999/11/0/2894979/)

However these results have little bearing on my situation. I am attempting
to burn an OpenBSD 3.1 CDRom from the downloaded directory structure (of
course) under Linux (Hey it's an easier desktop system, VMWare, and
Ximian!), and have attempted to the following procedure.

1. mkisofs -o /fs02/OpenBSD-3.1-sparc.iso -T -l -L -V "OpenBSD31SPARC" \
`find * -prune ! -name i386 -a ! -name sparc -a ! -name packages | xargs`
        The find was there to prune out the stuff that I didn't really want on
the disk :)

2. mksunbootcd -d -v /fs02/OpenBSD-3.1-sparc.iso floppy31.fs floppy31.fs \
floppy31.fs #( also tried the bsd.rd file )

3. Burn CD.

4. Throw CD into garbage as it is now a Frisbee ^TM (Whamo!)

If ya'll could point be to the vicinity of a more appropriate instruction
set I'd surely appreciate it :)

You cannot use this find construct here, you need a created tree with
all you need/want, and then point mkisofs to the path to it.
And I would use '-r' as well.

Vielen Danke. Alles ist gut jetzt.

It's amazing how it is the simple things :)
