Slightly off topic: If you have an Intel based Mac then you can use 
Parallels Desktop to run MS Windows or Linux
simultaneously with Mac OS X.  Parallels Desktop costs $80 US and runs 
at native speed using virtualization.
I have it now running on a new MacBook with absolutely no problems.  I 
did this so I could continue to
use BlackBox/Component Pascal under MS Windows.
