Bob C.--
,You were telling me about a way to run 8.x on a Panther or Tiger OS--What was it? It's been 2-3 meetings ago, and I've slept a bit since then. If I took notes like I should have, I've lost those. Yeah, life's a bit of a mess right now!

Thanks!

Dan,

Look at my article "Looking Back Into The Past" in the January 2008 newsletter. I talk about Basilisk II. That's the program that allows you to emulate a 68000-based Mac on a new Intel or PowerPC-based Mac that's running Panther or Tiger. It should work with Leopard as well, but I haven't tried it.

Right now, I'm using mini vMac because the two programs that I wanted to emulate (The Fool's Errand and Shufflepuck Cafe) only needed OS 7. The emulation isn't as complete as Basilisk II, but the program is smaller and there's less to configure.

Kinda' looks like I posted it under the wrong heading, but will lookup the appropriate newsletter.
Thanks,

Dan,

Actually, the heading was fine. While I mentioned OS 7, you can definitely use OS 8 on Panther or Tiger if you use Basilisk II. I ran OS 8.1 on Tiger using Basilisk II. I think it can only go up to 8.1. I think it requires a PPC Mac if you go past 8.1. I'm not sure about that though.
