... on my iMac! I'm using an elemulator I found online (30 day shareware) and it's not that bad! Well, exept the windows part... Wink I'll post a pic of windows 98 instaling. BTW, becides the fact that it would be funny to see the thing run, I actualy am going to use it; I have an old copy of office 97 that I use.

which emulator...

...did you install?

Is it running under X or 9?

I haven't heard of any recent shareware win emulators for the Mac, so I'm quite curious.

*shock*

I'm praying that's at least a 333 and not a Bondi! I had VirtualPC on my old Bondi 233 and it went so slow it was worse than using windows 98 on a real PC... Wink

If found virtual pc to work very well. But I run it on a 1 GHZ powerbook. Only thing that sucks is that it need more ram to run Battlefield... But it's coming. Also Jetstar... where did you find this? How much is the full version?

Yes, it's a 333. Heh. The com

Yes, it's a 333. Heh. The computer next to it is a P4 1.2 ghz, but who cares? Tongue I can't find the stupd site that had it, but it wouldn't be worth it anyway, it was *soooo* buggy. They didn't even have a X version! I'm going to look to see if VPC has a demo version.

that might be worth a shot ... it should allow you to run some Windows applications under OS X (just like classic applications) ...
