As far as I know, it runs "mostly fine" under 7.0 as long as you don't
enable 32-bit addressing.  I think that the "mostly compatible" evaluation
is a bit optimistic, however, and wonder where that evaluation came from.
The incompatibilities that I'm aware of wouldn't prevent it from launching.

Groping around: what kind of Mac are you trying to run it on ?  Any unusual
INITs or unusual hardware ?
