I know it is not the ideal place to ask this question but the qemu forum is down and the qemu-user mailing list just send me 550 unknown user errors.

I have a powerpc-elf binary that is supposed to be open firmware
bootable. But I found no indications about how to boot it with
qemu-system-ppc. The -kernel option doen't work. I try with using the
file as a drive (hda) but still no result. I began to investigate and
try to buid a disk image, partitionning and setting it bootable with
pdisk but I still miss the tools to format the filesystem and copy the
binary into it.
I try to find some info on the web but I only found info for bootable
CD-Roms for particular systems and I'm a littre bit lost.
Do someone know a way to simply boot the elf ou simply build a bootable
disk image ?
I use Mac OS X not Linux.

by the way the qemu compiled from the CVS with the cocoa interface
seems to ignore the options given in the command line

thank's for your help
