No and yes. You can't run windows on a Power PC Mac. There's some Virtual PC software from ages back that emulates the x86 processor architecture necessary, but it never really worked well. I have it and I'll give it away, but it's not worth the effort. The newer versions require a minimum 1 GHz processor, anyway. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Vir...

You neglected to mention the possibility of a multi-boot, it doesn't have to be virtualization.

rab: you can't boot a g4 into windows. This is emulation, not virtualization, anyway.

Virtual PC 7 (I think the last version, company was purchased by m$) did run on PPC machine, however it was win95/ME/XP. It ran stable, but there were some things (particularly games) that didn't run or the hardware peripherals wouldn't be recognized.

Maybe you could find it online (ebay or Craigslist)

N .

rab if you're going to use this as a reference, how about negating the downvote you gave me on it ;-)

I did, someone else must have downvoted it

Thanks for the help!

I don't think I will do it, because i had to upgrade the processor then!

You can use software like Paralells to run windows inside mac OS, but windows cannot natively run on a mac, however they can run versions of linux.
