    I recently tried to install rosetta on my osx snow leopard. I put my disk in and went to customize and installed it with no luck. I then decided to just to a fresh reinstall with rosetta being installed also. I went to get info on my PowerPC apps and tried to check off the run in rosetta box but it wasn't there. Is there something i'm doing wrong when im installing the game?

    Rosetta isn't a game. What PowerPC apps are you using?

    I skipped the Rosetta install myself and the only app thus far that wanted it was Office 2008, which I installed thru terminal to bypass the Rosetta install.

    If you have Rosetta installed and you execute a PPC based program, it will start up automatically and your program will run w/o any further interaction.

    That's normal; PowerPC apps need to run in Rosetta so there's no option, since it needs to always be enabled. Only Universal apps will have that option.
