Hello

I would first like to say hello, I am new here. I am purchasing a Powerbook G3 Lombard this Monday.

Secondly, I am a sucker for some older DOS flight sim games, and I would like to know if there is, or ever has been any DOSbox versions that would run on Mac OS 9.

Thank you.

The only versions of DOSBox are for OS X I'm afraid. Not to sure what DOS emulators were available back then for OS 9, if any...

Good news is you could install up to OS X 10.3 on it and run it from there. TBH, I'd recommend OS X over Mac OS9 any day and you should be able to find an old copy on eBay for pennies now. :)
