Where great old Macs live again!

Hi Forum. I have been browsing Mac Garden lately and was amazed at all the cool games that are on it. Although, I can not seem to figure out how to make Mini vMac work. When I start it up I get this:                                                                                                               

Then after I press "C" I get a black window. Can you help me out on how to get it started.

I got those, and I tried dragging them to the mini vMac black screen, but it did not work.
when you do get the rom, make sure is is in the same folder as the Mini vMac application
I wrote a tutorial for Mini vMac. It's in French, though. You can use Google Translate if you wish.
There are links towards ROM ressources.
Mini vMac is great! It's how I run Word 5 for a lot of the stories I write nowadays. My SE/30 finally croaked on me and my 512 has no keyboard :(

It's the only way I have of sharing the magic of the old compact Mac with my girlfriend. Somehow I think it loses something when it's running on my G4's big screen...

Has anybody tried vMac on the iPhone? I got it going and it's pretty darn good!
