IIRC, there were problems w/ BootX and OS 9.x. Seems there was a thread on
that on the YellowDogLinux list a year or so ago. I don't remember the
solution being "extensions off," but, hey, if it works.....

actually got the installer. My mac is running 9.1 so some older OS's might
run fine. I can now actually start playing with this thing.
