Apple dropped support for Classic back in Leopard. Some have used SheepShaver, although I don't know how well it works in Snow Leopard.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), + [Leopard] / G4 Digital Audio, G4 mini [Tiger 10.4.11] / G3 MiniTower [OS 9.2]

Currently Being ModeratedDec 26, 2009 6:54 PM (in response to smilesushibuddy)You can download a fully functional SheepShaver running Mac OS 9.0.4 with all the necessary files, including the ROM. Google ' +COI Mac+ ' and you'll find a download link.
Another solution is Basilisk II. It emulates an earlier Macintosh using Mac OSes up to 7.5.5. Google ' +WPMac Appliance+ ' and you'll find a fully functional version with System 7.5.5 and necessary ROM.
Please make sure you have legal right to use the ROMs and the OSes.Pismo; MacBook Pro; G4 iBook; G4 PowerMac; 24" iMac, Mac OSes: 7.5.5 tho' 10.6.2
Currently Being ModeratedJan 4, 2010 9:19 AM (in response to smilesushibuddy)I have a Snow Leopard too, and I've went on Sheepshaver to try and download it to run a classic environment. But I couldn't find a link to download it, it just gave me codes for other websites and companies, such as Basilisk II and CVS (Concurrent Version System). I couldn't find a download for Sheepshaver there, either. Am I looking in the right place? Has anyone downloaded Sheepshaver to be able to help me do the same?Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

Am I looking in the right place?
Apparently not. Please try again. Look at the reply just before your first post. Follow those instructions and yes, you do feel lucky.
I'm sorry, but I can't provide any assistance with more detail. Sheepshaver requires MacOS ROM files to run and those fall into a grey/black area of copyright law.MacBook 2007 (white), Mac OS X (10.6.2), 2.0 Ghz/4GB Ram/200 HD
