    For truly old get vMac (Mac Classic 68000)
    for relativly newer (color 68040), get Basilisk II

    both require a system rom, and a boot disk/image (google)

    The rom is easy enough ;)
    if you have system 7.5.3 (free from apple), it should include the boot disk
    You should be able to create a disk image with the included program HFVExplorer, format new volume, give it a name and size (I recommend >200MB)
    then in the basilisk configurer, add that image to the drive list along with disk1 of system 753 (and rom set up) it should boot. there should be an install program on disk1 of s753 to install everything on the new image you made.. if you need step-by-step, you can aim me or something (same name as here)
