I just compiled and installed SheepShaver, and I downloaded a Mac OS 8.6 CD image from BitTorrent(yeah yeah, dont bitch), and when I set it as a disk in SheepShaver, it takes 10 minutes to boot, but says it only functions on the original media. I tried mounting it loopback, and setting the boot device in SheepShaver to CD-ROM, but it just couldnt even find a boot device at all and flashed the ? at me. Do I have to burn this to CD, and if so, how?

I'm all for killing pirates. Pirates suck, and are the bane of the Internet. If it weren't for scum like them, all this RIAA BS wouldn't be happening. Same with the stupidity of the Americans in trying to legislate it.

So even though i've bought Mac OS 9(in the day), and it even came with my iBook, I still have to pay for OS 8.6? No.

Well, if you're running MacOS on non-apple hardware, you're not exactly following Apples EULA anyway. Is it now up to you to decide what portions of a license agreement you follow and what you don't?

This high-road so many of you seem to take is just silly.

Actually, I don't know if that's been tested in court or not, and I couldn't find anything specifically stating that you couldn't do that, at least in the US. Do you have a link to back this argument up?

It's also not an accurate analogy; MacOS 8.6 and MacOS 9, while containing much of the same code, are two different products, with one containing features not available in the other. Two tunes, as long as they come from the same master, could be argued as the same tune.

You'd have to ask Apple. I know MS will allow you to "downgrade" your OS. If you own XP, for example, you can run 2000 in it's place.

If Apple did allow you to do this, you wouldn't be allowed to have OS 9 installed on your iBook and have OS 8.6 on another machine at the same time... But you can't legally run MacOS on non-Apple hardware anyway, so it's a moot point.
