    Officially, Apple dropped support for classic starting with Leopard. You can try Sheepshaver but be prepared for disappointment.

    No. Classic was last supported in 10.4, and even then you had to have a PPC machine to run it.

    Yeah, and 10.6 is Intel only, You cannot run 10.6 on a PowerPC mac.

    No, sadly you can not. This is very unfortunate as there is a wealth of software or Classic that never got developed for MacOSX. This is especially true in the area of educational programs. The 1990's were the renaissance of learning software and Apple has destroyed that by abandoning Classic.

    Apple should:

    1) continue support for Classic or,

    2) release the code, all programming notes and other info so someone else can do it either privately or as an open project.

    Boo-hiss on Apple for their failure to support educational customers and kids by dropping Classic.

    Cheers
