Re: [wpmac] Re: How to Add UNIX HD to SheepShaver volume
- Short answer: I already have Nisus Compact (which is a free
download), and the OSX versions involve money. Another reason: I'm
curious about how many OS 9 programs can happen in SS and how to get
them to start.

not work under Sheepshaver, but the few I've tried (under the version
of the OS that comes with John's install -- I still to have unearth my
install disks for anything more recent) work just fine. Just mount the
sheepshaver disk image in OS X, drag the requisite file(s) and folder
(s) to where you want them, and unmount it before launching SS. I've
even been able to run them with the classic app living in the Unix
disk/folder, but desktop associations (file type to app) don't work
well in that situation.
