Dear John,

please have a look to this page,

http://minivmac.sourceforge.net/index.html

Mini vMac
is a Macintosh Plus or SE emulation for many platforms,
including Mac OSX, Linux and PC.

You need to get a MacPlus ROM file, I can not provide.
If you own a Macintosh including the needed ROM,
you can download a Macintosh ROM here (checked 04.2007):

Mini vMac emulates a Macintosh Plus, one of the earliest of Macintosh computers, sold between 1986 and 1990. It can run old Macintosh software that otherwise couldn't be used on recent machines, and so helps to preserve history, from the era when the modern user interface for computers was being defined.

Mini vMac is a spin off of the program vMac. It was originally intended to be of limited interest, a simpler version to serve as a programmers introduction to vMac. But vMac hasn't been updated in some years, and doesn't have a number of fixes included in Mini vMac, so Mini vMac may now be more generally useful.

To meet the goal of preserving early Macintosh software forever, Mini vMac is intended to be as simple and maintainable as possible, while still being usable enough that the software running within it is as usable as ever. Also as part of this goal, Mini vMac is intended to be easily portable to new operating systems. So far it works on Macintosh OS, Microsoft Windows, and the X Window System.
