You have two choices, that I have tried, both of which work.  There is
a fully-fledged Macintosh emulator, which will also allow you to run a
lot of Macintosh software. It's called Executor, and you can get it
from ftp.ardi.com.

Secondly, if disk copying is all you want, there is a nifty little
DOS program around called Mac-ette.

Both of these products cost money, but they are quite cheap.

Last time I checked, neither program would run under Windows NT,
although ARDI may have fixed Executor by now.
