I'm getting Leopard here in a few days, so I am trying to figure out if Final Fantasy XI is playable on a Mac through Bootcamp. If anyone here has tried it out, I'd like to hear your thoughts on it.

Also, I'm pretty unfamiliar when it comes to this stuff, so I am not sure if it can even work because my Mac is pretty old.

I'm using a 2005 Powerbook G4, so I'm having some doubts about whether or not I can even do this.

Any ideas or insights on the matter would be appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks

Boot Camp only works on Intel Macs. The best you can do in terms of running Windows on a PowerPC Mac like yours is VirtualPC or something similar, and the performance is far too miserable run a game (Pentium 2 equivalent CPU emulation on G4s I believe; I use it occassionally on my PowerBook).
