I really don't know who else to approach with this, and this is (potentially) GRUB 2 related (if/when GRUB2 boots from CD).

GRUB2 should boot just fine from a CD.

Basically I hack away at my "kernel attempt" on a an '05 iBook (dev system is 10.4), and decided to look into making a bootable CD so I could use QEMU PPC emulator instead of rebooting to test after every compile.

I created the bootinfo file (like this):

If I boot up while holding "C", I get the gray screen, I can hear the CDROM spin up, then I get kicked back to the white and black OF screen and there is an error about memory access violation.

You didn't mention where you placed the bootinfo.txt. It should be /ppc/chrp/bootinfo.txt on the CD. may have some information that helps you (though some of it isn't directly applicable).
