Yes you can remove these applications without causing problem in OS X. I think however you'd be happier wiping the hard drive (AFTER backing up any files you need) and installing OS X fresh without the OS 9 feature; not only would you save quite a bit of hard drive space but you'll see the machine run quicker.
Civ II is a fairly old game. It seems that your PC runs Windows XP or earlier. It is likely that the site you read was correct, and your computer is too new to run it. However, you may be able to get another newer version of Civ for Mac, but check the system req's for any game you try to install. I don't know for sure if this is the case, but I hope this helps you somewhat.
Google for: PF1209 Mac driver (you may add UC-Logic, Genius, Pentagram, Trust)
and find the OLDEST available driver. It should be a .pkg file after extracting.
Install it (it should be the v.1.0 control panel) and then you may install the recent v.1.24.2 driver over it.
It is still a bad written chinese PPC code conflicting with some applications but it works in the meantime.
While the whole planet slides down on the windoze-skit
- I'm waiting for a real Mac driver too ;o)
I had the same thing happen when I switched from os9 to osx. I had to install the programs, Quark, Illustrator, etc. then the icons appearance was normal. You may also have to actually open the program, then open the files themselves before the icons show as normal.
Have look at the box again, does it have the smiley picasso face for Mac or does it have the X? (or does it just say Mac?)
I had a look on Amazon and I could only find Mac mentioned, and seeing that the game was published in 2001 and all the windows versions listed are pretty old, I would suspect that this is an OS9 game and will therefore not run in OSX.
However seeing that you are running a G4 machine you should be able to run the game in OS9 without a problem.
