Make all versions of Mac OS 9 boot successfully in QEMU with all Apple extensions
'''Summary:''' Short description of the project
Mac OS 9.2 does boot in QEMU without extensions, but certain extensions that ship with
Mac OS 9.2 need to be disabled or else they will cause booting to fail. We need any issues

• Apple Audio Extension
• Apple Enet
• Multiprocessing folder
• Open Transport aslm modules
• Text Encoding Converter
Without them some applications running in Mac OS 9 are severely limited or simply refuse
