    Get Virtual PC. It simulates Windows on a Mac. Of course it makes your mac run more slowly.

    Welcome over... to the Mac-side

    Not sure if u've tried, but have u tried searching for the Mac versions for ur files? They usually end with extensions like .dmg or .sit

    no point using VPC... it is so dog slow you can cry.

    but for the sake of compatibility, one may have to take a dip once in a while.

    Try to find all the Mac versions of the software you are using, or find an alternative. Try to avoid emulation (e.g. VPC) as much as possible.

    i think playing CS on VPC on a mac is no-no... it'll be too laggy... that's one of the drawbacks of using a mac actually.. less games to play... well, that's y i still have a cheap windoze machine for me to play games at home.. hehehe...

    but if u r gonna run less processor intensive windoze stuff, VPC will do just fine, esp on a G5... hmmm... and i think VPC 6.1 does not run on a G5, u gotta get VPC 7, which for the same price can get u a cheap windoze box lar... hehe.... it's ur choice... (well, there other other cheaper alternatives too... )
