    Hey guys, I am looking for a program (preferably free) for Tiger to boot into XP. I have a few programs I use that I would like to use on here instead of pulling out my old Windows PC to use them. I tried the "Q" one, but it is HIGHLY unstable and won't even make it through the XP installation process.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Oh, and it needs to work with my G4.

    A G4 is a PPC CPU, therefore Boot Camp and Windows wouldn't even run on that Mac, as it requires x86 CPUs (made by Intel).
    What about using Virtual PC? But know, that it will be slower than you booting up your older Windows PC.

    VirtualPC and Windows 2000 is usable.

    Do NOT try to run Windows XP, tho.

    I'll use 2000, then. I have it anyways.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    Q emulator. I installed Windows 98 and it was still dog slow lol. Tried it on my G4 and G5s.
