My lines were a bit too long in the composer and got wrapped by either 
the SMTP server or by Netscape. It's a misfeature of Netscape to allow
arbitrary dimensions of the composer window when I specify to wrap 
lines .... I hate this almost as much as seeing infinite long lines.

I think 7.5.0 should be fine, I'd rather advise against 8.1. The Penguin 
color map should give sane console colors; does the booter switch the 
colors at all while still at the Mac desktop? For me, the effect is that
the Penguin console window gets a black border that wasn't there before, 
and that the colors in the screen background change. That's both with and
without a 'Penguin Colors' file present, in 8 bit color. 

If you use something other than the builtin video hardware, try disabling
extensions on booting.
