Others may suggest you to boot into MacOS (the classic version, not
MacOS X), use BootX and then load Linux.

I have old copies of MacOS 8 & 9, so the BootX and load Linux looks like a good starting point for me.

It seems that a version of MacOS 7.x can be downloaded legally somewhere
from Apple's site (please, if you go that route, it would be a good
thing if you posted the link here to the list).

I looked around the apple site, and couldn't find any Pre-OS X downloads - there may be an archive somewhere, but I couldn't find it. However, a couple of people in the Apple Legacy Software Support Forums had pointers to http://www.macintoshgarden.org/apps/operating- systems . I have never used it and have no idea as to it's legal status, but it sure has lots of old MacOS versions.
