I was going to say that you couldn't, but I forgot all about MacOnLinux! I
would like to supply AppleWorks to our LTSP, and I just might be able to
do it with MacOnLinux. Downside is that you have to setup an application
server on Mac hardware, but that shouldn't be too hard. I have no idea
what the licensing would be though! Apple's EULA states that the OS has to
run on Apple equipment, but I don't think it addresses where the program
is displayed... :-)
