    Ive noticed quite a few games and a playstation emulator that i would like to play on powerbook g4, which is running leopard. What is the easiest and best solution to get them work?

    PCSX is a PlayStation emulator that works with OS X. It can be downloaded for free from here. To run Classic applications in OS X you would need to copy an OS 9 system folder from a PowerPC running OS 9 onto a volume running 10.4 Tiger. Tiger was the last release to support Classic.

    thank you for the tip about the emulator. There are so many great classic os games, wish there was an easy way to get them to work on my Powerbook g4.
