A PC with windows, or try to find a mac equivalent program. What program do you need to run?

filetopia is the program i want to run. having a pc to run only that kind of defies the purpose. also i forgot to mention i'm running 10.3.9 (updating to it as i write this).

The problem is, you have G3 so there's no way to install windows so emulating it is the only way. You cant use parallels or anything because they are intel only.

I briefly searched and didn't find any mac equivalent program so I think you're only options are a PC or Virtual PC. Virtual PC is basically a way to emulate windows on older macs, but it is extremely slow.
