    I want to know if I can install Macintosh System 7.1 on VMWare
    Workstation. The files are in format '.smi.bin'. I don't know If I can
    open those with VMWare or have to get a special, OR, If you can't
    emulate Macintosh System 7.1 on Windows.

    I know I could just download it and try but there's 10 files and there
    around 1.2MB.

    I have 28.8K dial-up.

    Is your host operating system on a *386 cpu? If so, it won't work
    because Vmware will emulate the host architecture and Mac 7.1 won't run
    on a *386.

    I don't even know if Vmware runs on anything but Windows and *nix.
