total noob so apologies if this is a dumb question - i did try to search for it to see if it's been asked before.
does anyone know if i'd be able to run Illustrator 8.0 from my Mac book - OS 10.6.6?
i'm fairly sure i can't but there may be something you techies could point me towards.

In a word no, Illustrator 8.0 is for the Classic Mac OS (pre Mac OS 10.x.x).
The oldest Illustrator version you can run is Illustrator CS2 using Rosetta. But is very likely that it will be very prone to problems due to it's age.
Mac OS X 10.6 Help: If you need to install Rosetta
Adobe on the other hand does not support anything older than Illustrator CS4 on Mac OS 10.6.x because of hardware changes in Intel Macs that make older software problem prone.
