Is there a way to get MS Paint to run on Macintosh? I need exactly MS Paint, no other. If that really doesn't work, is there a program that is similar to MS Paint that is free?

VirtualPC running a version of windows with MS Paint is the only way.

In response to your second question, the same question was asked three questions below your post. Here lies your answer.

GraphicConverter reads and writes all file types created by MS Paint plus many, many more. It is bundled with most new Macs. The application is shareware, but Apple pays the shareware fee for you. If you have an older Mac, download it. GrapicConverter is fully functional before you pay the shareware fee, but is so good that you will gladly pay if you can afford it. You can find it here.

Why do you need exactly MS Paint? It's not like it has some proprietary format you can't open in any other program.
