I put the appropriate part of molrc.osx as

blkdev:         /dev/hda        -rw

According to comments in that file, only HFS+ partitions are exported,
unless -whole flag is used.  So one can make a type HFS partition first
and export only it, but I do not know how to make OS X identify and
offer this volume as a target for itself.  Or, one can leave blank
space, export like the line above, and have OS X's "disk utility" plow
the drive.

I'm at a loss about what's the best way to handle this.  I resort to
installing OS X first at the back of the drive (to run in mol or
whatnot), and then installing Linux.
