Yepp, "BootX" - I had forgotten the name. It's annoying, but it works.

Hint: Since not every PPC-Kernel supports HFS+ filesystems, you should
intall your mac OS 9 system on HFS (without "plus"), since the kernel
you want to boot has to be copied from linux to Mac OS, so you sometimes
have to mount the Mac-partition in linux.
