MAC OS Rom from G4 Pismo..


Although, I have plenty of powerpc based machines, I just installed sheepshaver on my gateway P-6860fx laptop.. can I just use the rom from my G4 Pismo to run sheepshaver? Will sheepshaver recognize the new world rom from the G4 Pismo(was G3 500)?, or do I have to use the older pre-G3 based roms?

I'm sure that it wuld be fine, but you may find that you can't then use SS to emulate OS's earlier than those supported by your ROM.

Emaculation ist hosting some guides and how to's about valid ROM's for SheepShaver.
A 4MB ROM from an early PCI PPC would do best, as SS is emulating a PPC8600.
A ROM file from Apple's iMac upgrades is fine too, but it will not boot into OS7.6,
which is one of the fastest and stable OS for SS.
