    Hello all,
    I have a MacBook Pro on my desk. It has Intel Core Duo 2.16 GHz processor and 2GB DDR2 SDRAM. Is there a way for me to use Mac OS 9 on this machine?
    Thanks in advance.

    You can use SheepShaver to emulate it, but you can't run it natively.

    No. OS 9 will only run on PowerPC, not intel.

    You can install OS X Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) which have Rosetta, which can let you run some OS 9 apps.

    Rosetta has nothing to do with running Classic apps and hence Leopard or Snow Leopard will not run Classic apps without the SheepShaver emulator or its "all-in-one" bundled cousin, Chubby Bunny.
