 We start with the description of a classic setup with all files together in a folder named "​SheepShaver"​. That folder can be anywhere you like, for instance in your Applications folder or in your Home folder. In this setup, with the needed files together with SheepShaver in the SheepShaver folder, no full paths are required for configuration,​ just the file names will work. However, files and folders can be renamed and/or moved to different locations, provided you make sure the file names and/or full paths to the files are entered in SheepShaver preferences. We start with the description of a classic setup with all files together in a folder named "​SheepShaver"​.

-**Mountain Lion and later issue:** OSX 10.8 and later prevents mounting of physical CD-ROMs in SheepShaver but images created from CD-ROMs still work fine. You can create an image from a CD with Disk Utility. Make sure you choose either "​read/​write"​ (.dmg) or "​DVD/​CD Master"​ (.cdr) for the format. Compressed and read-only formats will not work. Follow the instructions in Italics for setup with a system install disk image.

-To create a disk image: \\ +Download: http://​www.xs4all.nl/​~ronaldpr/​sheepshaverforum/​SheepShaver_UB_20091025.zip
-- Mount the CD in OSX \\ +
-- Start Disk Utility (in the /​Applications/​Utilities folder))\\ +
-- Select the CD in the list on the left\\ +
-- Click New Image in the tool bar (in newer Disk Utility versions use New Image from the File menu)\\ +
-- Choose DVD/CD master for the format\\ +
-- Click Save\\ +
-- Place the image file where you want to use it and then lock the file in the OSX Finder (checkbox in the Finder Info panel for the file).\\ +
-- Use the SheepShaver preferences editor to add the image to the volumes list. Shut down and restart SheepShaver. The CD will show up on the desktop.\\ +

-**On Intel machines**\\ +**Loss of cursor image after full-screen ​toggle**\\
-After minimizing or hiding the SheepShaver window and again bringing it back in view, colors in the window will not be displayed correctly. It can be resolved by forcing the emulator to redraw its screen ​by changing (and changing back) the color depth setting in Monitors control panel or from the color depth control strip tile. +

-If you find this issue very disturbing and do not need new features in later builds, you can try the older 25 October 2009 build: +

 When you switch from window to full-screen mode using Ctrl-Return before you used the mouse cursor in the emulator at least once, you may loose the cursor.
