    On the Additional Software & Apple Hardware Test disk that came with your computer (most likely), double click "Install extra software" and install OS9 Classic.

    It's an emulator for OS9 that lets you run OS9 programs in OSX.

    ..and if you have any other problems after this, see this thread.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
