      This is very cool. It lets you start using SheepShaver with OS 8.5 -- 9.0.4, with the advantages those OS versions confer compared to the freely available OS 7.5x, among them much faster Applescript performance.

      Looking at eBay just now, I see an OS 8.5 install disk closed out no bids at $1.99. The update from 8.5 to 8.6 (recommended) is a free download at MacUpdate.

      SheepShaver / WordPerfect just keeps getting better.

      Thanks again, Ed.

It will not conflict in any way with any existing copy of SheepShaver or any SheepShaver-based setup that you may be using already.
