    I was wondering if it would be possible to partition your drive and on the partition, install a PS2 emulator, or essentialy the whole PS2 BIOS and system, so that way I can boot straight into it and it runs faster, etc.:)

    I have pcsx2 already, but it is buggy on 10.6 right now, which is another reason why I would like to boot from another partition.

    You can install Windows on a different partition and run the Win version of PCSX2 yes.

    You can't install the "PS2 System" on a partition.

    If I am reading this correctly, no. The PS2 does not use the x86 instruction set and, even if it did, it is mostly constructed from proprietary chipsets so an emulator is your only solution.
