While browsing Flickr this afternoon, we came across a shot of a Nintendo DS running Macintosh System 6 in emulation
on reader Ken Fager's Flickr stream. Of course, we contacted him to ask how he did it. Here's what he had to say.
First, grab a DS flash card
and install MiniVMacDS
onto its root directory.
Once that's done, place the Mac Plus ROM into the "vmac" folder along with a System 6/7 install disk (you can make a blank disk image using Disk Utility).
Finally, turn on the DS and select MiniVMacDS. It will boot the disk images. From there, install (minimal) System 6 onto the blank disk image.
Ken notes that it's a bit pokey, but hey, this wasn't done for speed! Have fun if you try this for yourself. Thanks for sharing, Ken! We love it.
