Does anyone know what harm, if any, classic 68k virii may do to AmigaOS4.1FE?

Very little, most lurked on bootblocks, so there's a possibility they're in ADF images but they will only cause trouble in UAE. Others that hit the hardware directly won't work & ones that patched system libraries can't patch OS4 native libraries.

Thanks. As I thought. Any virus scanners that work on OS4?

That's not true, they can patch the 68k JMP table, but not the interface table.
Anyway, 68k viruses cannot infect PowerPC Elf programs.

Anyway I don't think self modifying 68k program is supported on Petunia JIT, so if the virus use technology like that to hide it self, (crypto code) I don't think it will work.

off topic, but in latin Virus has no plural! You have to use Vaenena instead...
