    It is possible to run Classic on an iMac G3, G4 or G5 running OS X 10.4. It is not possible on an iMac Core Duo.

    The iMac G3s and G4s can also boot into OS 9.

    Already has. Sheepshaver, a PowerPC Mac emulator, will run MacOS 8.6 or MacOS 9.0.4, and has been ported to the Intel-Mac platform.

    No networking support and no printing yet, but you can run your Classic apps. (At early G3 speeds, since you're emulating a processor you ain't got — same as running VirtualPC on a PowerPC Mac)
