Has anyone had success using Sheep Shaver to run OS9 under Tiger on an intel Mac? (I searched the MacTalk forum but no-one has really discussed this).

There is some discussion on the uneasysilence forum but its not clear why it works for some people and not others (including me). I need to run some legacy software and would prefer to do so using my new desktop Mac than keeping an old G3 in the office.

I can only get so far with installing Sheep Shaver - it bails out with this error message:
"Cannot map first Kernel Data area: Permission denied"

Any tips will be very appreciated!
