Running Windows 95 Games on Crossover

Not sure if this is the correct forum for this thread, but it seemed like the best place to ask. I bounce back and forth between some topics, but any help is greatly appreciated and welcome.
I recently picked up Crossover, for the sole reason of playing some old PC games on my new iMac. Frankly it works flawlessly for this purpose and I have been able to install and play many of my old favorites that I haven't looked at in almost a decade.
However, I have a handful of games that will not install saying "Must run on Windows 95" or something like that when I try to install them.
I'm wondering if anyone has found a way around this issue, or if my best bet is to dust off my copy on 95 and install it on my iMac to play these games.
Here's a list of the games:
Riven (sequel to Myst)
The Space Bar
Escape From Monkey Island (the first three don't work either, but I'm able to play those along with some other LucasArts titles I have on the SCUMMVM)
Also, Riven and The Space Bar both have mac versions on the discs, but they are for mac "classic" and I've been having one **** of a time getting any of the virtual machines running. If someone could direct me to a very precise step by step process of how to get a classic mac OS on an intel mac, I'd be greatly appreciated. I've tried SheepShaver, Basillisk, and a couple others and just run into a ton of problems. Perhaps I'm not savvy enough to handle this process.
Does boot camp allow you to install a previous Mac OS? Also, I've been trying to install the free copy of OS 7 distributed by apple if that makes a difference.
Thanks for any help I get with this.
