    Hey everyone,

    I want to run Ubuntu and Mac OS 9 on my PowerPC Leopard Machine. I want to run Ubuntu for fun, to explore new regions... and I want to run Mac OS 9 to play Classic games like Backyard Baseball. I need help trying to figure out how to do this...

    Thanks,
    Michael Lindahl

    i would use virtualbox it is free and very good
    it is at virtualbox.org, it can run ubuntu, a good linux choice

    Mac OS9 can't emulated on a mac you need to partition your machine and install it on that

    runing Mac OS9 on leopard is illegal and can't be talked about on this board

    Why?

    Having your bike on your pickup is illegal?

    I don't think that virtual box is availible for my Power PC mac... It will only let me select the Intel Mac...

    It runs on both PPC & Intel. It is a bit of a bear to setup though. Highest Mac OS it runs is 9.0.4, and you have to get an Apple ROM from Apple's website. The problem is, you need OS 9 handy & already running in order to extract the ROM so that it can be used. So, you need another Mac that already runs OS 9, or you have to look around for a boot ROM in other places.

    huh?

    What in the hell are you talking about? It's a pain to do, but it's certainly not illegal.
