This may not help much, but if you have access to Mac ROMs, then there is
an "emulator" you can get for the Atari ST line of computers. Basically,
it's an interpreter-type program ( to use the differently mapped memory )
and the ROMs to execute Mac programs directly on the 680x0 of the Atari.
I cannot remember if the company that sold that (that last I checked was
still in business) had a ROM-board / emulator that would work in a PC...
Come to think of it, the memories of this stuff are pretty rusty, so take
what I just typed with a grain of salt... but it may give some folks other
ideas as to where to look.
That's the Magic-Sac I imagine. It used a cartridge with Mac Rom chips and
once booted on the Atari ST, ran System 6. I have a couple but I'm not sure if
the spare works. They required a watch-type battery. IIRC they were made by
Dave Small, an innovator who pops up now and then between retirements.
He got in a lot of trouble with Mac (I believe) and litigation etc. ran him
out of business.
Occasionally they turn up on the Atari ngs. or at Atari swapfests.
Incidentally, for anyone in the Toronto area, TAF is having one Nov 18.
Details on the TAF web-site.
Sure hope that isn't a porno site like the last mis-addressed URL :^))
