Well, if you really want the feedback, I tried it out and found that
it doesn't actually work on at least some Macs. It doesn't even start
running on my Mac IIfx. After the bootloader starts the kernel, it just
hangs forever, with no output even to a serial port console.
This isn't a real surprise, since the Mac support in 2.4 has been
seriously neglected. Obviously it's partly my fault, since I'm still
working on 2.2 code, and not very often at that...
