We finally got the firmware upgraded, and the Seagate 40Gb hard drive (as MASTER) installed.

Now it's time to install OS.10.3 on this iMAC G3.

I have set up my 8Gb partition for the system, but OSX refuses to let me select this partition (or any partition) for installation. The partition is a JORNALIZED.

What I am doing wrong? :confused:

Your 8GB partition must be less than 8, try 7.98GB.
