    I am finding that it is tough (if actually possible) to run the Classic Environment with Leopard on Intel-based Macs. However, I have an iBook G4 from mid-2005 that came with Panther. I upgraded to Leopard, and so lost the capability of running Mac Classic.

    I recently bought a study book for a college exam, but the software it came with requires Mac Classic, which I cannot run. Is there a simple way of making this work? I tried SheepShaver, but I couldn't figure out how to make that do anything useful. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Very tough, in that it is impossible.

    What is the software that it requires a nine year old OS?! :eek:

    It's a GRE test prep manual with supplementary software. The book has a copyright date of 2003, so I'm not sure why it won't work on OS X.

    Actually, it is impossible squared. Classic does not run under any installation of Leopard. Classic also does not run on any Intel-based Mac.

    I have a tutorial on running Basilisk II along with everything you need on my website.
    (It is very similar to running SheepShaver)
