DOSbox on Mac OS 9?

I was looking for PC emulators on emulation.net the other day, and I found an "Altivec-enabled" version of DOSBox in a plain .sit file. The download link was dead, but this got me excited, as I thought there were no versions of DOSBox on Mac OS 9 at all, and a .sit file usually means it works on OS 9. So, I was wondering, does anybody on this site have any versions of DOSBox for Mac OS 9? Considering that's all I have (well, I have OS X 10.3.9, but most of the programs I try to run on it are too slow for my poor old iBook G3.), this would be a tremendous help to me. :cool:

IIRC, a lot of earlier OS X applications coded for 10.0, 10.1 etc were packaged in .sit files fairly frequently. It was just a natural transition over from OS 9 to OS X.

Can give PCx a good word, it was extremely fast even on my old PowerBook 1400. Was only running Windows 3.11 but hey, this thread's about DOS. I can't see that being an issue.
