The NetBSD/prep ISO is lacking the required "PPC PReP Boot" partition to allow the ISO to be bootable, making an installation of NetBSD/prep impossible by CD.
Get a PReP box, write the ISO, try to boot. Nothing.
Figure out how to get the boot partition and booter into the ISO.

 Boot with NetBSD 5_BETA ISO failed, boot process stops at Firmware
 Checkpoint F05 on a Model 7043-140.

 Checkpoint F05 is "Passing control to the Operating System", stopping
 at this point indicates that the integrity of the boot image is
 suspect according to the service manual.
