Thanks Tim and Rick;
just reading through the details of installing VirtualBox and it seems
pretty do-able; looks like I'll need to download and install the
extension pack in order to read the db file off a USB stick, but
they're both recent and powerful macs, so with a following wind I
should be ok.

Wine looks interesting but I think this'll do it if I can follow the manual.
(and hey, it's IT. what could possibly go wrong, right? ;o)
Thanks again
