"Host" is the computer and system on which you installed SheepShaver. It could be OSX/macOS or Windows or a Linux flavor.

So, which is your host system and which SheepShaver build do you use and where did you get it. (The version number is not enough for identification, very different SheepShaver builds all carry the version number 2.4.)

The keycodes file translates sdl key scancodes to Mac keycodes. You compiled SheepShaver without sdl support.

You could try this alternative keycodes file: http://ronaldpr.home.xs4all.nl/sheepsha ... ycodes.zip

Not sure if it will work, though.

Edit:

You cannot copy paste files or folders in MacOS, only file and folder names.

Copying files or folders in classic MacOS is done by dragging and dropping the icons. Dragging within locations on the same disk volume will move the files or folders, dragging to a different disk volume will copy the files or folders. Dragging with the option (alt) key pressed will always create a copy.

You could create disk images inside the PPC 8500, copy the files onto those images and mount the images in SheepShaver by adding the image files as volumes in the prefs file.

Note that many Mac files will not survive when saved on a non-Mac file system!
