    You can not install either one on a PPC machine. You need an Intel machine. And believe me, you don't even want to try emulation software to run Windows. It's unbelievably slow. It may be time to trade in the G5 for an Intel machine.

    What version of VirtualPC are you trying to install? 6.1 and lower won't run on your G5. You're going to need the latest version, 7.0.3, which you can download here. VMWare Fusion and Parallel are for Intel Macs only, so they won't work on your G5.

    However, as chscag stated, it's going to be a painfully slow experience.
