Yeah, I wish.  Those guys haven't made any progress in quite some time. 
  I was considering helping out with the port, but the current version 
doesn't even work well on Linux!  I tried using it to boot OS X 10.2, 
OS X 10.3, and (a much older seed of) OS X 10.4 several months ago, and 
it was crashtastic for all of them.  I wanted to use it to test my 
products without a reboot, but MOL did more rebooting on its own than I 
would've done otherwise :)

MOL was originally designed to run the 'ol school Mac OS, and that 
seems to be all it does well (at least, I hope it does *something* 
well, I had no reason to try it).
