    Ok guys, here's the problem. I've got an iMac G5 2.1GHz. I need to run windows on it so I can study for rank (USAF). The study program is not available in Mac format, and Parallels is only for Intel Macs. So, I was wondering if anyone knows of a way for me to get cheap (or free) virtual PC and windows XP so I can make some more money??!!

    you can install virtual pc, but that'll be dog ass slow.
    just buy some shitty emachine or something.

    Sorry but you're best off finding a friend with a PC that will let you run it on his computer. VirtualPC is slow as a dog and pretty worthless.

    Almost suggested boot camp. :greddy:

    You can get something working off craigslist for like $150, at least around here. You'll drop more than that on software, even if you get a good deal.
