    Is there any possibility how to emulate Mac OS 9? I do not mean only PearPC project. I tried Basilisk but with no success. Can anybody answer?

      With Basilisk? 

      No.  Basilisk is a 68K Mac emulator.  A genuine hardware 68K Mac will not run MacOS 9, so neither will the emulator.

      With Sheepshaver? 

      maybe.  People have booted MacOS 8.6 on Sheepshaver.  I don't know about 9.

      With PearPC?

      maybe.  People have booted MacOS X on PearPC.  The problem with MacOS 9 is that a ROM is required, and I don't know if PearPC is set up to look for and utilize a ROM file even if you supply one.

      MacOS 9.0.4 now works in SheepShaver. See Christian's homepage for details to download CVS code, or check my site for precompiled binaries.

      You can't run Linux within Basilisk II, as far as I know, because it doesn't emulate the MMU of a real hardware 68K Mac.
