I'm trying to get a copy of Red Faction to install on my Macbook, but because the Macbook is running OS 10.4 and Red Faction is for OS 9, it won't allow me to install. My question is this: is there a way to "force" applications from mac OS 9 to install on OS 10?

The problem goes deeper than that. You can't run Classic on an Intel Mac. At least not without sheepshaver (I just report! I didn't make up the name!)

They're working on an OS X port. I dunno if it's official, but you can get betas of it right now. Check it out: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...edfaction.html
