You'll need a map file - this is what we use in anaconda, use with -map.

This is what we use in fedora essentially:

mkisofs -o boot.iso -chrp-boot -U \
-prep-boot ppc/chrp/yaboot \
-part -hfs -T -r -l -J \
-A "Fedora 4" -sysid PPC -V "PBOOT" -volset 4 -volset-size 1 \
-volset-seqno 1 -hfs-volid 4 -hfs-bless $(pwd)/ppc/ppc \
-map mapping -magic magic -no-desktop -allow-multidot \

Note the hfs-bless using a full path due to mkisofs wackiness.
