[Qemu-ppc] Mac OS Server 1.2

I’d like to get this working on Qemu-System-PPC, I can boot from the OS 9 partition of the install CD, but when I try to boot BootX manually from Open Firmware I get garbled video. I may need a custom version of BootX, but I can’t figure any way to modify the install CD ISO. No matter what I do, the ISO file will only mount the HFS partitions of the CD read only, even if I use DiskUtility to convert the image to R/W.

Anyone know how to convey them ISO to a file that is R/W for the HFS partitions?

 To complicate matters the CD has a Apple UFS partition, and I can’t find any way tom out it, at all. I need to get a look at how the partition is played out, to try and boot from it.

Anyone know how to mount this partition? 

Their is also a Apple  Boot Helper partition, but I don’t know the file format. I may need access to this partition as well.

Also, the g3beige target machine seems to be broken, it won’t boot OS 9, I can boot OS 9 with -M mac99, even if I chose -cpu G3, or -cpu ppc( 604 ).

Is this a limitation of the Open Bios, or did someone push a change to the code that broke the g3beige target?

Do I need an Old World ROM to run as a Beige G3 machine?

Seems like I would, but I don’t understand how it really works. 

Beige G3 seems to work fine with OS X 10.2.

Last question, and I know it’s pretty dumb, but I want to add to the CFLAGS when I build Qemu, but I can’t find any place to add them, that doesn’t just get ignored. 

Is their a file I can edit to add CFLAGS to the global build of Qemu?

All I can find is a bunch of references to QEMU_CFLAGS.
