So, I realize this is a really DUMB question, but whats the best solution for windows emulation on a PPC mac.

A lot of people told me to look at Parallels but that's only for the Intel Macs.

Any thoughts?

Yeah, VPC runs, that is for sure, just not very fast. If you are doing simple things it will get the job done, but just don't count on anything fast, and no games beyond solitaire or FreeCell! :spook:

okay - thanks guys. I figured that VPC was the way to go but I had heard of so many other programs I just wasn't sure what was the best solution.

VPC is now a free download so it's even better. If you can't get along with that, there is also Q, which is a Mac OS X version of Qemu and works in a similar manner to VPC.
