I saw that in the DVD image for Fedora Core 6 ppc, there is a
"iSeries" directory within /ppc which does not exist anymore in the
Prime DVD image for Fedora 6.92 ppc. Maybe that's the reason?

Another thing what I saw in the Fedora 6.92 image is that the volume
ID is not set properly, because is has double quotes on the beginning
and end of its string - '"Fedora 6.92 ppc DVD"' instead of 'Fedora
6.92 ppc DVD'.
