4. Could I just add a MorphOS boot volume to a standalone CD that points at the actual on-disk volume?
Yeah, you could I suppose... Make an ISOPATH folder and copy mac_ppc32 contents from a MorphOS ISO there. Then edit bootinfo.txt and edit the boot command to look like
assuming DH1 is where your MorphOS install is. Now make an ISO with mkisofs
mkisofs -iso-level 3 -R -l -allow-lowercase -omit-version-number -full-iso9660-filenames -hfs -hfs-unlock -part -no-desktop -map hfs.map -hfs-bless ISOPATH/mac_ppc32 -b boot.iso ISOPATH
For the hfs.map use something like:
# ext. xlate creator type comment
macofboot Raw 'UNIX' 'tbxi' "bootstrap"
.img Raw 'UNIX' 'boot' "bootstrap"
.conf Raw 'UNIX' 'conf' "bootstrap"
* Ascii '????' '????' "Text file"
Might work :) but you may as well just run MorphOS from the OF cmdline. I doubt there is a way to make OS9 NOT break the installation and this is something we have never aimed to support.
