    Or any other version of Windows for that matter? The specs of the iMac are in my signature. I'm pretty sure Windows XP requires at a minimum 64MB of RAM and at least a 233MHz processor.

    You'll need an emulator, and on the G3, that would be really slow. Natively, it won't work.

    Oh yeah...I forgot that PowerPC wasn't x86 lol

    I wasn't really thinking, but I kinda thought it might have been possible.

    But, it can run on the Intel Macs natively, correct?

    Sort of like VirtualPC for Mac? I have it on my PowerMac G4 and XP runs just fine on that, but still.
