You can boot it on real hardware on the Mac, but since Macs are EFI its
a bit more work. Virtualization would be a lot easier and that works for
sure on the mack.

You could try to get it working with the grub2+efi support bootloader, but not sure if that variant of grub supports the multiboot specification.. Go do some googling on EFI booting of syslinux or multibootspec kernels

What type of processor  does it have? If it is a x86 then just goto your bios and boot from what ever device you put it on (Sorry i dont know anything about macs but that is because mac os is the most retarded os ever and apple needs to go to hell)

Macs dont have a "BIOS". They use EFI which is what complicates things.

I don't know much about macs either but this is a Mac from 1998 so it might be possible...
