Not true.  I use it on my dual 8500.  The thing is, after a certain
release of MacOS, it does something bad to the second processor.  So
you have to use a version prior to that with BootX, or use quik.  Or
miboot, I guess, but I've never used that.  I don't remember the
exact release number when the problem started, but I have 7.5.1,
which is fairly ancient, but does the trick.  I don't use macos for
anything else, so it's not a problem.
