Owner: Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>

  Description     : Early Mac Image LoadEr, a bootloader for m68k macs

EMILE is a loader for booting Linux on m68k Macintosh computers. In
contrast to the Penguin booter, EMILE does not require a working MacOS
installation; it thus allows on to boot GNU/Linux directly, rather than
having to boot MacOS first before being able to load the Penguin booter
and GNU/Linux.

Although fully functional, EMILE is not (yet) without its share of
problems at this point in time, though; people less experienced with
running GNU/Linux are probaly still safer off using the Penguin booter.
