It's actually an 8.6 CD, and SheepShaver boots from it just fine. When
I launch WP, it displays the splash screen and then, since it's trying to
write Library and Prefs files in the system folder, which is on the
read-only CD, doesn't get any further.
Comment on the ATPM article suggests everyone is getting stuck with
SheepShaver booting from anything other than a CD. Since everyone is
having the same problem, it should be fixed soon . . .
Meanwhile, the Classic OS looks very nice on the Intel machine.
