Hello all!

My question is that since I am a new user in MAC environments.
I have the following configuration I want to get Leopard 10.5 ....

PPC G4 Digital audio
- CPU 933Mhz
- RAM 1GB SD RAM
- VGA Gforce 4MX, 64RAM
- HDD ATA 60GB
- Digital Audio

I want to ask whether there is an option to be used for boot camp to install Win XP because I have to use some Win application.

Thanks in advance.

Bootcamp requires an Intel Mac. You cannot use it on any PPC Mac.

If you look hard, you can track down a copy of Virtual PC 7, which is capable of running Windows XP inside OS X. It is slow like crazy, but if the application you need isn't too intensive like MS Word 2003, it would be OK.

Virtual PC 7 is an option for a G4.
