I have a number of quickfix games which require rosetta to work. I have ML on my MBP, which originally came with SL. Can I "restore" SL to an external drive and boot from there as I wish? (If I can find my restore disks, that is :-/)

I don't see any reason why option-booting to your external wouldn't work - might be pretty slow though.

Yeah. It will be, but I'm not playing any of those gfx intensive shoot things or drive madly games. Might give it a go sometime soon. Its either that, or acquire an old G4 mini (which, ultimately, might end up being the most logical option).

Just connect the drive, boot up from the SL install disk and select the external hard drive- It will be a bit slower but should be usable :)
