I successfully booted from the ppc boot.iso and did an NFS install. When it came to partitioning the disk I selected to remove ALL partitions and then selected the default LVM partition layout and all the other bootloader defaults, etc.

Command-Option-O-F while it's booting) and show output of 'printenv boot-device' ?

Also show output of 'dir hd:2,\' and 'dir hd:2,\\'.

Then try 'boot hd:2,\ofboot.b`

# mounted root partition and looked at anaconda.ks created during install
