 because I can use Boot X to get my 7200 and similar machines running.

 My question:
 Why would I NOT want to use Boot X (or some other utility) and instead
 trying to boot directly into Linux?

to make your life as hard as can be ;-))


 1) Needing a MacOS partition and using up Disk Space for it (which is
 good 'cause I'm not ready to give it up)

... and if you're intending to run MoL you'll need it again.

 2) Having to wait for the MacOS to boot before dumping it for Linux

much more than i? (about 15 sec. a day)
