Well, I haven't done that (I haven't yet taken the time
to get MOL to work), but I have run a GNU shell (cygwin)
and emacs on WinNT4 under VirtualPC on MacOS9 and it runs
reasonably fast on my Pismo! (~ the same as a 400Mhz PII)
It is quite fun to see the double takes as folks realize
that the box is a Mac! I'll have to try the MOL some day...
