yes there are emulators but the instructions are all in tech language and i have no idea what there talking about. I can do anything in the OS but i am very bad at programing like that.

Not sure about OS7 on the PC, but what happened to your Quadra? Is it totally gone?

You could try this

Basilisk is the only emulator that I know of for early Mac System software.
PearPC is only an emulator for OS X as far as I can tell.
