I'm sure you'll get many suggestions that sound something like this.

Check to see that the PowerMac's "Modern Memory Manager" is turned off, 
and unless you've applied the patch also check that the PowerMac's Virtual 
Memory is off.

MCL 2.0.1 dislikes those two PowerMac features. Digitool has announced 
that MCL 3.0 will correct these two (and more) discontinuities. Check the 
FAQ for more particulars and a projected release date for v 3.0.

hope this helps
