[opensuse-ppc] making 13.1 ppc32 image bootable on PowerMac

the 13.1 NET image for ppc32 doesn't boot on PowerMac; it's because the
boot folder isn't "blessed". You can use mkisofs with the option
-hfs-bless /suseboot to fix it (and -hfs needs to be added if it's not
there), and the -map option with a small file with HFS type/creator
(see attachment, which worked for me)

Then the folder will be recognized as bootable, and the boot script
named "os-chooser" will be recognized and executed.
