Booting 9.1 under MOL didn't work, time after time, because I didn't upgrade the “Mac OS ROM” file that MOL uses. I got the standard “please upgrade your Mac OS using the Installer” alert at startup, and I just didn't recognize it for what it was.

Tried upgrading to XFree86 4.1, which was mostly functional, and it gave me my arrow keys back, but the display was messed up when I used Debian's X configurator, and XFree86 -configure crashes. So it's back to XFree86 3.3.6 with the broken arrow keys for now.

Let's see, what else… the Linux-1394 CVS code worked perfectly, I now have my FireWire drive mounted in Linux, and even bridged through into Mac OS thanks to MOL. Networking works with MOL once I actually decided to read the error message it gave me, though I haven't tried masquerading my PPP connection yet. Audio is still a problem: 9.1 behaves the same way 8.6 did, so I'm guessing something is wrong on the MOL side. I'll check their mailing list and post if needed.

I still haven't gone through sagas like this with Mac OS X, so I figure there's still a reason to keep using it. :-)
