Not as far as I know Mr Bailey. It's not just a lead issue either, as
the PROGRAM was written for a PC and not a Mac, so even if you did
manage to make up a cable, it still won't work.

Sorry..

Virtual PC is a PC emulator for the Macintosh.  On newer PowerMacs, the
emulation performance is quite good.  If it weren't for the d*mn
hardware dongle on the CSM simulator, I'd be using it via Virtual PC (or
SoftWindows) on my Mac at home instead of my loaner PC laptop.

Getting a PC 9-pin serial to Macintosh DIN connector should be pretty
straightforward.  I don't have the pinouts handy, but with some good Web
searching, I'm sure you could find the pinouts -- either that, or visit
a computer store and have them make you a cable.
