Someone here told me to use VPC to use Windows Apps on my MAC. They told me that the cheapest one was one for DOS and that later on I would have to upgrade it to Windows XP. But the ones that I've seen at the stores where VPC but with Windows XP already included. And that sucker was priced in at $220!!!  I'm not paying that much! Especially since I already have Windows XP Pro. So what do I do? And where do I go to get this VPC that this person had told me about? OH YEAH! How much is it?

Its an emulator package. It installs a virtual drive with DOS on it. You open the program, it opens a windows, and gives you a DOS prompt. Insert yer windows disc, and install it the same way you'd do it on a PC.

Weed, are you sure this works? Last thing I want is for this to either not work or for it to be really slow! Just so you know I got the iMAC 700mhz with 256ram.

It works but on that machine its not going to be especially fast. You didnt get much ram either.

256 isn't enough? But will I at least be able to use say Microsoft Office XP at a decent speed?

Probably but i dont know why you wouldnt get Office 10 for Mac which has features the XP version doesnt have. Itll run a hell of alot faster, less overhead, and look better.
