I completely cleared MacOsx off my ibook and now im kinda regretting it. I would like to install Mac and use mol but i dont want to have to repartition. I did a search and it seems that it is possible to install to an image file but i cant find any how to's. There was a link to a how to in one of the search results but it was a dead link. Any suggestions.

I run OS 9 under MOL in a 512MB disk image file so I don't see why what you're doing shouldn't work. The image file is called an HFV Hierarchical File Volume and is compatible (if not identical to, I don't know) with DMG. You should have no problems creating a dmg under OS X and using it with mol. But since you don't have Os X anymore, you can use this:

Code:

emerge hfsutils
man hfsutils
