    I have old copies of Mac OS 8 and 9 that I'd like to try out on my Intel iMac. I've looked around and found some emulators, but I'm a little confused. What's the best way?

    Get an old Mac that actually boots into those operating systems. :p

    A Blue & White Power Mac G3 is a good start. The Mac OS 8.6 and 9 discs work on it just fine.

    IMO, Sheepshaver is the best, but ironically you need access to a mac with OS9 to install it...

    That would be great, but in the meantime, I'd just like to run it virtually. :)
