"Now kids can launch their programs, but can't access yours!"

With KidDisk Family Edition you can give your children the "keys" to the computer without leaving your programs and files at risk! The auto-start option provides constant hard drive security; any time your computer is turned on, KidDesk will appear. Make a desk for every child in your family. Then select the programs you want each child to launch from KidDesk. With the click of a mouse, they'll explore their own programs independently! When they exit a program, they'll return to their own desktops... Not yours! And KidDesk offers more than hard drive security, it gives kids 11 fully functional accessories—just like those on a "real" desk!

I have installed the software on a Power Macintosh G4 but don't know how to add a program to my cute girly desk.

You should be able to just change the extension.

The disk images are in ".dsk" format. Re-upload them in ".img" format for use on a Mac OS computer.

This works in Basilisk II. It's fun to set this up with your games and pretend you're a kid again!
