rhapsody or os x server on wallstreet?

i managed to get copies of rhapsody and os x server 1.2, and i really wanted to see them on my wallstreet. of course both say they don't support the computer. i did my research and didn't find anything about either system on the wallstreet, but are there ways of getting around issues like with the powerbook 3400? if not...then how about an emulator or computer that would be ideal for them? really interested in seeing rhapsody in action, but i'm disappointed that i can't get it running (no i haven't tried to install it, and i have a spare hard drive to do that with). ideas, please.

No Way

Rhapsody simply won't run on any laptop except a 3400. There are rumors it will also work on the nearly-identical-under-the-hood, 2400, but I never had any luck running it on my 2400. It's possible - though unlikely - that it might run on the original PB G3 - the 3500 aka Kanga.

Ditto for OS X Server - which is actually a pretty decent OS to play with on a PCI-based Power Mac (7300-9600 series). OS X Server really is pretty much NeXT running on Mac OS with a halfway Classic Mac OS skin, and added-on compatibility with OS 8.6 via Blue Box (precursor to Classic).

But as for Wallstreet, I think you can forget it. For emulation, you'd need Rhapsody for Intel, which might work on Virtual PC - but it'd be dog slow. And OS X Server is PPC only and so won't run natively (because unsupported) or in emulation (because it's PPC) on a Wallstreet.
