Also note that via MOL, MacOS has access to partitions on
disks/controllers unsupported by MacOS, like a Promise U/66 IDE
controller on a 7600. This way it's possible to get your MacOS boot
_faster_ in MOL than for real ;-)

The same trick should work for NFS mounts, as long as they are mounted
_before_ starting MOL.
