    I have a bunch of very old macsoft games (fulll throttle, day of the tentacle, the dig, etc...), that I played on my first powermac at least 8 years ago, before the intel processors in everything. However, when I tired installing one of them on to my macbook, it said the system does not support it. Is there anyway I can bypass this?

    You games sound like they were written for Classic Mac OS (say OS8 or OS9). Unless fully Carbon updates have been releases these games require Classic to run. Classic is an environment that allows OS9 to run inside OSX. Classic is not available on an Intel processor and there is no way round this.
