Glad it helped.

Yes but a more practical solution is to use virtual OS X machines.  
Although, technically speaking, the license text for older releases of 
OS X did not allow them to be run as VMs, the latest releases (10.7+) do 
as long as they are run on OS X hosts.  For older releases (10.5 and 
10.6), there are a couple of tricks needed to make the client work; they 
should be easily googleable.  I've had great success with VMware Fusion.
