    Do you have the sheep module loaded? If not, please try commenting out the following lines in /etc/mol/molrc.net:

    ifeq ${boot_type} newworld oldworld { # Configure for MacOS only
    netdev: eth0 -sheep
    }

    I'm having the same problem. I'm using mol 0.9.72.1 on a current install of Ubuntu PPC (more details if necessary). I built mol from the source archive this morning, and cannot get it to boot off my OS 9 install disk.
