In all honesty, I don't think you have to worry about old Macs.   
There is an evolution that *just* happens, and forcing people away  
from an old, non-standards based browser on a very old Mac is not  
going to loose too many users.  90% of Mac users use Safari or a  
Mozilla variant, and those should be the people to concentrate on.

You have to bear in mind that IE users on the Mac are used to  
websites not working properly.  Not because the designers do it  
wrong, but because the browser is sh*t.
