There are emulators for the 68k Macintosh, and they could work, if you
could find somewhere to open Macintosh floppies: I see somewhere that
1.44MB Mac floppies open in PC's, but 800K floppies won't.

Look at .
And apparently, Mathematica runs in ARDI's Executor:

And if Mathematica 1 ran on DOS, I think VMware would be up to the job
of running it.

But I am unsure; I started using Mathematica on version 4.0.
