(In a reply, someone said this worked.)

This is a great idea also for systems such as mine: I run MacOS most
of the time, but like to play around with OpenBSD. This would let me
boot the machine into OpenBSD without all the overhead of booting my
MacOS startup drive.
Perhaps someone could write a HOWTO detailing how to make such a
disk, etc. Of course, it would be a good idea to write the HOWTO
in a general fashion so it applies not only to OpenBSD/Mac68k but
also to NetBSD/68k would be a good idea - and perhaps even to
Linux/68k (hey, why not?)
