The tech blurb on these machines says they can boot OS9. Does that apply to all G4 MDD dual 1.25s or is there a specific model/s I need to know about. My assumption is that most people who own one of these computers runs OSX, thereby not encountering the potential problem of OS9 compatibility.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...I'm confused!

Cheers!

As long as its a newer PPC Mac it will run 9.2. Back in the old days before all Apps were ported to run in OS 10 you had to run OS 9, when you get past 10.3 you do not need OS 9 at all to boot. Now I don't know to much about G5's they may be 10 only.
