Do you have a CD of it? The only way to find out is to test it.

If you've got the CD, you've got some rare stuff.

I think that SheepShaver would have a better chance of running Rhapsody, because I think that they didn't have G3's at the time Rhapsody was first released to developers. BTW, What exactly is TKA?

Rhapsody will not run in SheepShaver due to a lack of MMU.

Rhapsody could work in PearPC, but that depends. Rhapsody isn't a standard OS and it has a very unique way of interacting with NVRam/PRAM.

Also, the CD isn't in a unified format, it's a UNIX filesystem which may or may not like being ISO'ed.

But give it a try.

That shouldn't be a problem with the nativecdrom builds. The problem is more likely to be that PearPC would not detect the boot image on the rhapsody cdrom.
