Hi Art:
Yes, if you have a dual bootable system it does work. We have set ours up to
boot up in OS9 and run Cellquest Classic without any problems. We did this
so we could still use Fileguard which only works with OS9. I suppose you
could boot up in OSX too and then launch OS9 when you launch Cellquest.
Shouldn't be a problem if you have the appropriate system which can
accommodate the dual boots.
