[K12OSN] MOL on LTSP PPC Appserver

Just letting everyone know that it looks like it actually is possible to
set up a PPC Appserver running MOL and display OSX on i386 and PPC thin
clients.  Below is a link to a screenshot of the OSX installer running
from a YDL LTSP server displaying on a Term150.

Now just to get MOL installed and fully functional :-)  Does anyone out
there have a successful MOL installed on any ppc platform?  If so what
distro did you use for the base and what hardware?  The instructions
from maconlinux.org are very vague and outdated.  I am assuming that I
need an HFS partition with OSX (or OS9) installed on it.  Then another
partition with Linux and MOL, then point mol to the hfs partition with
the mac os?  Once I get it running stable on one machine I'll set it up
as an appserver and see how it handles a load.  Looks like it is only
configured for 10 connections by default.

Just thought this may be a nice way for admins to support legacy apps
that people won't let go of just like you do by connecting to a Windows
terminal server with tsclient or rdesktop.
