Just create a xfs filesystem on your shelf and cp the contents of the
CDs into that dir.  You're going to have to modify the command sequence
for installing from the shelf, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Dunno.  Is it, or can it be, set at 512byte-blocks?  If so, chances are
the Indigo will boot from it.

It's really quite easy.  It's verbose, but the process is simple.
