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 http://www.ardi.com/ardi.php . And apparently, Mathematica runs in ARDI's Executor: http://www.ardi.com/compat_detail.php?app_id=276 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. -- Thanks/obrigado, Renan "Wishmaster" Birck - Canoas, Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil MSN: wizard_of_yendor at hotmail.com Orkut: http://www.orkut.com/Profile.aspx?uid=2202360379963855296
