MOL (Mac-On-Linux) using Mandrake 9.1

Hi people,

Is anyone using Mandrake 9.1 and can get MOL working? I keep getting this error;

A screen pops up but OSX will not boot, then the screen disappears. I'm running Panther 10.3 on my mac.

You have everything installed properly, you just need to add the -X switch

your command line should look like this: "startmol -X" case sensitive....
