i'm a mac noobie so this is probably a dumb question:

i need this dictionary on CDROM for my new powerbook but am not sure if it'll be a pain-in-the-ass to use.

this is what they say on their website:

"At this time, Stedman's Electronic Medical Dictionary is NOT compatible with Macintosh OS X. When you run it on Mac OS X, it will launch Mac OS 9.2 (included with the Mac OS X installation) to run."

from what it says, i guess it'll work on my PB but is this going to be a lot of trouble and time consuming switching between mac os x and 9.2 whenever i use it?

any help is much appreciated; thanks

it wont be a hassle running it through classic, although maybe a bit slow, i wouldnt worry about it too much, classic will open up through OS X so you will have no switching to do, although you may have to install it yourself, im not sure if the new macs come with it pre-installed

Ahhh no.. if your powerbook has Classic (OS 9) installed, Classic will launch automatically within OS X. However, you may need to install Classic from your installer DVD first..
