Can I use the 10.4.11 Classic "Mac OS ROM"?

Greetings, all.

Apologies if redundant but I am unable to find this topic via the search engine.

I use a G5 running 10.5.8. It previously ran 10.4.11. I kept the previous OS on a separte hard drive in the same machine. Now 10.4.11 has a folder "Classic" in the "System Folder" that has a file "Mac OS ROM". Can this file be used in Sheepshaver?

Thank you.

No, that file will not work with SheepShaver. Use rom files suggested in our setup guide.

To provide more detail, SheepShaver only emulates up to 9.0.4, and that ROM was designed to work with 9.2.2.
