    Hi, i've got software and a peripheral that i still use with OS 9 However it is getting rather tedious booting into OS9, and it won't work in classic so is there any way to use OS 9 side by side With OS X, like windows on the intel macs, or is there an OS 9 emulator that loads the entire system On OS X
    Please help

    As a rule of thumb, emulators can't do what you want. There are, however, exceptions. Please state the peripheral that you want to use in MacOS X. We may be able to help you.

    You're probably out of luck with that as far as emulators such as Sheepshaver.

    Emulation in general does not support hardware native to the host. So your "virtual Mac" will likely never see that card.

    Hi, i've tried this before and it never worked, it gave some system error, and i tried it again and it still doesn't work, as for mac-on-mac that project is dead and doesn't work on 10.4 apparently He didn't see the need of it Because of the intel switch, so every powerpc user just abandoned their system?
    Thanks for your help, anymore assistence would be appreciated:)
