    I want to install Red Faction, but I'm running OS X, and I don't have Classic installed on our system.
    Is there anyway I can install it using OS X?

    Thanks :)

    I think they released some updated OS X CDs for Red Faction. You can try to find one of those (possibly the company sells them for an upgrade fee, if they have any left).

    Thanks, I'll look around for those. The only things I have seen are the OS X patches.

    Yeah, I've seen those. I actually need to install it first, though :)

    Trust me, it would be far, far easier to just install Classic (isn't it on your system restore/install discs? I assume this isn't Intel?) than to get Sheepshaver running & hope it could run the OS 9 installer.

    No, I don't have an Intel computer.
    I have the Classic CD'S, and when I was trying to install it, it said back the computer up first, and we don't have anything to do that.
    I was just wondering if there was any way to do it differently.

    We probably should backup our computer anyway....
    My sister has like 7 gigs of pictures from her trip to New York, and other stuff.

    I don't remember anything like that with Classic here. Aren't you just using the Classic installer package from your system disc? It just copies some files onto your hard drive, nothing special.

    Yes. You are asking for trouble otherwise. :)

    you should be backing up anyway so just buy an external drive and then install classic.

    :: arrives waaaay late again ::

    Yes it is true. There is an exchange program by Graphsim - customer sends in the original double disc OS 9 Red Faction installers and for FREE the customer will receive a single OSX DVD installer. Follow the instructions here: http://www.graphsim.com/support.html.

    Disclaimer: I visited the Apple Store not too long ago and the Intel Macs wouldn't run the Red Faction DVD installer. Sad. Real sad.
