ok guys here is the deal, i have a powerbook G4 running leopard, and i NEED!!!!!!!!! to get it to run windows, now i know the whole bootcamp way is out of the question seeing as how, the powerbook does not have a intel chip in it, so i was wondering if VMWare or Paralels would be an option.. if not then im wondering if you can answer this question, there are two websites i need to access, (no inclined to devulge any info about the sites via personal security reasons) although i need to access them and i cannot do it from my mac, both the sites say i need to be running windows, or if im on a mac, then i need to bootcamp. well since i cant install bootcamp, then im wondering how to either install and run windows, or to access these sites. cannot get to them from either firefox, safari, or IE or mac.. so some one please help me.. i need this info asap. you can either post here, or email me for an immediate response at robbiemcguire@mac.com

VMWare and Parallels wont run on PowerPC CPU, only Q (kju:) and Virtual PC are able to do it.

Q didnt work, or i couldnt get it to work, and all i can find are updates to VPC... would the updates install the program as well?
