01-19-2005, 02:42 PM #1jabberwock486Guestboot disks
i have gotten ahold of an older G3 powermac that i would like to use. if anything to get more experince with apple computers.
the computer is a desktop modle, 266Mhz, i belive. no USB. and the unit came with no OS or software.
keep in mind i am from the X86 world, so i know almost nothing about apple. I want to know what OS's from apple this system can use. i know it can use versions of linux and unix. also how do i make boot disks? tell it to boot from disks? Or know if it can boot from a CD?

If you search this forum, there is an individual here that installed OS X.3 on the biege G3 that you have. I lhave the 233 model. I loaded it with OS X 10.1.5 and stop there. You will need the program call XPostFacto to get it up to 10.2 or 10.3.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
