Ok so I had this idea. Basilisk II is an opensource mac ppc emulator that can run macos 6.5-8.1 at very good speeds and is rather stable. Now with all the problems we have running older software, is is posible to port over basilisk ii to the x86 platform and use that like the classic mode?

Basilisk is not a PPC emulator, it is just a 68k emulator. So you could only run very old software. But you might want to try with sheepshaver or pearpc.

PearPC doesn't do the Openfirmware dealy, so it can't run pre OSX yet. Basilisk won't compile, nor run from binaries either.

I've been playing around trying to get it, but to no avail.

Someone posted about Mac on Mac in another thread on the boards. It might be a suitable solution...

Mac on Mac emulates PPC on PPC. It's a port of Mac on Linux to MacOS X.
