External Documentation

There evolved a lot of very useful sites in very short time, that give a much more userfriendly documentation (this site was more or less designed for developers). But please don't bug me if their instructions don't work, I'm only responsible for the instructions on this site. If you know of addition sites, drop me a note.

  • runs Forums, Guides, FAQs
  • Emaculation, they run a PearPC forum and have additional helpful downloads (like prepared disk images)
  • Abacado (German only), additional installation instructions for Mac OS X
  • PearPC boot cds, a nice description how to make a Mac OS boot cd and use it with PearPC
