Right first things first.

i own a emac G4 ( all in the screen jobby ) i bought this a good few years ago off a man in the paper it came with no discs or anything just the screen keyboard and mouse.

i recently bought off ebay adobe illustrator 10 and its got all the keys/codes etc. When loading it up it gets so far then says

" A valid Classic environment was not detected.

support for running this Adobe application as a classic application will not be installed. To add classic support specify a classic environment, then rerun the installer"

i haven't got any discs to run classic, or what it needs. is there anywhere i can download the drivers for this to work?? Im a bit at understanding all of this so if anyone can help id be very thankful.

Cheers - Dave

It's just telling you if you want to run it in OS 9 also you need to install it - it should be installed for OS X and run fine there.
Some of those Adobe installers install for both environments.

You cannot download it you have to buy it (e-Bay). And in case you didn't know...OS 9 was originally released October, 1999...that's over 11 years ago!!!

So you're really messing around with some REALLY old stuff!!!
