I did try making an HFS partition at the back of the drive (along with
the necessary bootstrap partition at the front), and OS X installer did
not find any partitions in which it could install itself.  So, I then
tried leaving the space at the back of the drive unpartitioned,
intending to use the OS X disk utility (in the installer) to make an
HFS+ data partition.  It did that, but it killed the Linux partitions in
the front of the drive, too.

Yes I did run mol as root.  I don't know how to run mol as non-root or
as non-suid.
