    A friend of mine just gave me a Mac OS 9 disc that he was about to throw out, and as I've never used that OS I tried to find an emulator for it on OS X.

    The problem is that most of the emulator resources and guides contain missing links and missing information, and it seems almost impossible to run OS 9 on a (more than powerful) MacBook under emulation.

    Do any of you know how to run OS 9 under emulation in OS X?

    FYI

    OS 9 is really old and cannot compare to OSX.

    OSX contains many technology developed over many years by Steve Job's NEXT company based on stable and secure UNIX system.

    Really?

    But can OSX play Classic games like Sim City 3000 / 2000, Sim Tower, or Driver?
