A dual-boot option is a bless!!  Two most beautiful systems on a single machine.  An important date in computing OS history.
Was: Mac Mini PPC running MorphOS 2.4
Now: Amiga Forever 2010 with AmiKit and AmigaSYS
Not used: Icaros Desktop 1.2 (reason: no wifi)
Planned soon: an OS4 system
Shortly then: a MOS notebook (wifi is a must-have)

The dual boot option is unofficial, however this guide by jacadcaps should help:

Really tempted to buy a second hand Mac Mini now... Any G4 model will do?

@ Flashlab

Yes, any G4 will do. But only the 1.5 GHz version has 64MB VRAM.

I have just downloaded 2.4 and will be showing it at this weekend's AmiWest 2009 Show in Sacramento, CA.

That is just one MORE reason to attend AmiWest 2009.  The Amiga Game Competition that I will be running during the show is another great reason to come and possibly win some prizes.

Hope to see some of you at AmiWest 2009.  I will be there on Friday through Sunday.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

Nice! Thanks, Team!

I can confirm that it doesn't serendipitously work on a 1.67GHz PowerBook G4 (hangs at Quark/OpenFirmware). Anyone got a spare iBook G4 they can try it on?

I'd really like to know what future developments are planned for Mac support. My Pegasos is fried and I'm wondering if I should try to get it fixed, or invest in a Mac. I'm not thrilled about the prospect of a downgrade to 64MB of video RAM (or less), so if PowerBook support is in the cards... that'd be cool.

The Mac Mini has the Radeon video card whilst other G4 Macs have Nvidea's.  That's not the only difference but it's likely to be a significant one given that there is no mention of Nvidia support on Morphos website.
