I tried with Virtual PC but IE still needed the ActiveX plug ins...
I'm still running a Dual 2Gig G5 w / 6 gig O RAM. Running 10.5.2.

I guess I would be more disappointed if I was missing STEAM ENGINES.

But why run Windoze on a Mac? :-) That's a sacrilege to us Mac-heads.

I have a Mac dice on the web site.

Yeah, it hurts to do it, but the consolation is that XP runs better in
emulation mode on an Intel Mac better than it runs on a PC. That was
also somewhat true when running VirtualPC on a PowerPC Macintosh.
There are some programs that are Windoze-only, so it is a necessary
evil. ATCS Monitor, the mapping software that came with my GPS, some
programs I need at work require that I lower myself to use Windoze.

As for the web cam, it only works with Internet Explorer and requires
that an ActiveX program be downloaded and installed before the live
view can be seen. It is probably a Sony thing. The web cams I use work
just fine in Firefox on both sides, in Safari, and in Internet
Explorer that has an ActiveX plug-in. Perhaps the folks who set up the
Roanoke cam can look at a better model when it comes time to upgrade.
