I've got it working with 10.3.8! All the instructions in the MOL wiki
work, except that the one regarding the init.r instructions are added
to a file other than the one listed, and, you have to make sure that
you open up the Networking preferences pane after you enable the DHCP

Since MOL's on a laptop all the normal hardware features aren't
properly supported (since Ubuntu itself doesn't handle trackpads
properly and doesn't pass on anything beyond a second mouse button
click or F11/F12 (I really should disable mouse button emulation but
it doesn't seem to use the same daemon as YDL so I couldn't figure it
out immediately)).
