    What specific program are you trying to run? Maybe there is a mac version of it or you can run something like bootcamp that allows you to have a windows environment on your mac.

    You can't just convert Windows executables to run on a Mac. You either have to run a separate copy of Windows using Bootcamp or use an emulator like WINE or one of the other ones for Mac.

    I'm not a Mac person, so I don't really know. But try these links:

    http://davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/
    http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX

    There are paid programs you can use to run Windows software on OSX, but I don't remember the names of them. If you tell me what you're trying to run, I might be able to suggest an alternative though.

    game is probably too intensive for emulation. it will work, but there will be too much stuttering.
    going to need to use bootcamp to get it to work
    it should work excellent in bootcamp tho

    www.macrumors.com and search up bootcamp if you're interested

    OP, you need to get a copy of windows 7 and use bootcamp located in applications > utilities > bootcamp

    and set up your hard drive for dual OS

    then after you install your windows 7, you can play games on g1

    and wsup pogue, with wine you can only use simple programs like an image converter on the go. can't really play games

    Go to finder, search "Boot Camp Assistant"

    Borrow a copy of windows 7 on the internet and install it. there you have it, you've got dual booting on your mac. also you can triple boot with linux as well/other version of windows such as xp, etc.
