    I have a 1.8 Gig Power G5 iMac. Can I install Bootcamp on it? If I read the specs for Bootcamp correctly, I need an Intel chip to run Bootcamp. True? If that's the case, can I get Fusion to run XP on my old G5?

    Why not buy a copy of Microsoft Virtual PC on eBay?

    You can run VirtualPC, but its ridiculously slow. Only Intel Macs can run the other solutions.

    I used to run Virtual PC on my G5 PowerMac, yes it was slow (ish) but not too slow.
