The original Mathematica 2.2 was 68k only. I think there was a 2.2.x release for the PowerPC, but I never received that version. The 68k release came in two forms, one requiring an FPU and the other not. The FPU-only version will not run on any PowerPC Mac unless you have software to emulate the floating-point unit. I think there is a product called SoftwareFPU for that purpose. -- Dave Seaman dseaman at purdue.edu Pennsylvania Supreme Court Denies Fair Trial for Mumia Abu-Jamal <http://mojo.calyx.net/~refuse/altindex.html>
