Wow! Makin' progress. I editted the /etc/molrc file and set the
"newworld_boot:" option to "no", then renamed my
/usr/lib/mol/rom/rom.nw to rom.8500. Now when I do a "startmol" I
get a lot of activity, a typical Macintosh startup sound, and
then a black screen. However, this may be related to my inability
to start X from xdm, as I just remembered that I had to blindly
type at the console an "fbset 640x480-60" to overcome an "Out of
ScanRange" monitor message when switching to a text console. So
I'll try to fix my scan range problem, then try startmol again.

Thanks for the help. It looks like this might actually work
pretty soon. Cool!
