    Hello,

    I've been reading on the web about how to run Classic OS on Intel Macs, but most of the articles are circa 2006.

    Does anybody have more current information about how to do this?

    I'm studying to get into Dental School and I found my Chemistry book from 2004 that had accompanying CD's that only run in Classic. I'd like to review them for the test.

    Also, if Mini VMac, Basilisk, etc., etc. is still the only way to go, can somebody tell me where I can get a copy of the Classic ROM image?

    Thanks,

    Justin

    Search for "Classic on Intel" and you will find a working solution. "Chubby Bunny" is also associated with "Classic on Intel".

    I'd suggest going with SheepShaver. And the Classic ROM files are illegal to redistribute, unless you own a compatible Mac to pull one from, because they are copyrighted.

    As noted in this article:

    You can download the Classic ROMs from Apple here:

    Mac OS ROM Update 1.0

    which is how I believe that 'Classic-On-Intel v 4.0.1 chubby bunny' acquired them.
