Shake 4.1 on an eMac?

Now I'm really pushing the limits of a old and cheap machine here, but does anyone know if its possible to run Shake 4.1 on an eMac? Motion doesn't run on one because eMac's don't have the required graphics card; is that the same situation with Shake? Is anyone here currently running Shake on an eMac?

Chris:

The graphics card is not directly an issue when using Shake. Shake does not utilize the GPU for previews. Therefore, as long as your eMac is at least a PPC G4 that is 1 GHz or faster, you should be okay.

Read this post of mine for more information: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showpost....3&postcount=25

Good luck!
