The latest PPC ISO does not use the same installation scripts as the x86 ISO
it was mostly just updated from the 0.8.1 ISO instead of using the latest
Cauldron scripts, but the next PPC/x86 ISOs should be closer together in that
respect. As for Sorcery and the grimoires, they may be a little more
on the PPC ISO since it was released a while after the x86 ISO, but that
be the only difference.

Now that our ISO/Cauldron Team is getting back all of our ISOs should follow
same layout with the same grimoires and Sorcery on them (unless Unet decides
otherwise :)).
