That won't work because even if this would be the right processor you would still lack the correct BIOS.

What you could run on pre-Intel Macs though is Linux/PPC. A collegue of mine is using his iBook as a dual-boot system with MacOS and Linux/PPC. He is satisfied with the results, but as far as i remember he had to tinker a bit until got everything working nicely.

Looks like it may be an Xterminal onto a real box.

for what I want to learn (including SA stuff), looks like an ebay RS6000 box is the way to go.

remember not to bid against me Smilie

Don't forget to get AIX on CD-ROM.

if you have time for a (possibly tough) setup, take a look at the "pearpc" emulator.

good luck, and success !
