Emulation
Guides on emulating older applications

Virtual PC is PC emulation software that provides users with the ability to run various Windows operating systems and software at reduced speed, right on their Macintosh, including DOS, Windows 3.1, 95, ME, and 2000.

Slower PowerPC systems will want to stick with DOS or Windows 3.1. Faster PowerPC systems will perform acceptably with Windows 95 and 98. G3 and G4 upgraded systems will perform acceptably with Windows ME and 2000.

Very late response to Wafflez post, but it might help others who go down this path...

This Virtual PC 1.x breaks at about Mac OS 8.1 or 8.5x - To have VPC running OK on Mac OS 8.6 - 9.2.2, you will need to install VPC 2.1.3 or newer.

DOS is a black hole, by its nature.

I believe, this entry is missing a Virtual PC matching operating system.
