    Sorry, didn't read your screaming letters. Something to do with readability of capital letters and such. Stupid me. :rolleyes:

    What about VirtualPC? It costs something, but maybe you can get a copy via eBay.

    But know, that running a Windows VM on your PCC will be foxing slow.

    Windows emulation on a G4 is painfully slow, XP takes an age to run so Windows 2000 is probably the best way to go, it still crawls but is useable.

    either that or an early MacBook, which will run OS X and Windows natively
