    I want to run 10.4.8 or 10.5 on my PC but on top of my Windows OS.
    I don't want to replace XP because I won't get it back...

    Does VMWare work this way? Or PearPC? I'm not sure?

    Here is a screenshot of my PCs system specs - I'd appreciate a tutorial.

    Thanks,
    Alex.

    I don't think i would bother with those specs haha, go buy a mac mini, or macbook.

    EDIT:
    No it works on PC also.

    to be perfectly honest, those specs are quote poor for running vmware

    and osx86 is hard enough to install on real hardware, vmware is about 10x worse

    Hmmm.
    Is VMWare a program that runs Mac on top of Windows?

    From the screenshots I've seen that's what it looks like.

    Even if I have Mac running JUST to zip files to make the repo compatible.

    VMWare is a program that emulates an x86 PC within windows. This means you can create virtual drives, boot straight from an ISO, add virtual hardware, etc as if it were a real PC.

    Only thing is, its very hard to make OSX86 run in an emulated environment.
