Guides on emulating older applications

Apple Hardware Test for PowerMac G5 has at least these version numbers (made 2003-2006):

2.1 , 2.2.5 , 2.5 , 2.5.2

Downloads 1&2 are the same All-In-One compilation, dL optimized for manipulating its image from within OSX & OS9 respectively. All-In-One v0.7-PMG5 houses AHTs v2.5.2 , 2.5.0 , 2.2.5 , 2.1.0 plus it has "ASD OF" versions 2.6.3 & 2.5.8 all on just one bootable or burnable volume plus a runtime menu for choosing among its AHT/ASD versions. The included ASD programs are useful for G5 Thermal Calibration and for Extended Test of video-ram. This has been arranged as verifiable open source edits all made by an enthusiast ; the AIO image not an apple endorsed product, nonetheless *contains several essential AHT bug-fixes; the "ReadMe" file in the dL explains.

Consider using AHT without discs. Apple's original method of booting AHT had been one version per disc you had to burn, and then Apple's original versions could encounter trouble running unless patched in ways found here. Explore this All-In-One solution.

dL #3 &up are library archives of original unmodified images or original download files. If you grab these you will find all images are empty of files and potentially useless to you because files had been hidden by apple and these images are limited in ways that the AIO isn't.

AHT 2.5.2-PM runs on All models of PowerMac G5 computer and is also the highest version, with the best information about graphics cards and other things.

The last two DLs are the German version of AHT 2.1.1 and 2.2.5 as found on German installation DVDs.

Anyone know Brazilian-Portuguese? AHT v2.5.0 displays "Carregando" for the word "Loading..." but the final version 2.5.2 changes to say outright "Loading..." - if this is a mistake in which the English image file had overwritten it, then I'd like to correct it in the next AIO, but does anyone think this one out of the 14 foreign languages had 'reverted' to the English word on purpose?
