How to recover my files!

I used to own a PowerMac 6100 running OS 9. This was the pre-Steve Jobs era so I lost hope in Apple ever getting it together and moved on to a PC. How can I access my old documents?

I saved the old SCSI hard drives from the Mac even as I got rid of the computer itself. Now, I have these SCSI hard drives, but no way to access the data within. What are my options? I do have an old Adaptec SCSI card lying around.
Are there any options for emulating an old PowerMac 6100? I would imagine that my Core2Duo CPU is more than up to the task of emulating a PowerMac 6100, but is there such a thing?
I would love to actually emulate my old OS 9 mac, but failing that, I would settle for getting the old documents (such as MS Word Docs) off of the HFS formatted SCIS HD.
What are your suggestions?
