From what I have read an heard. If you install it on a system with less than 256mb of ram you be hurting. It will work, but slow. Anything above 256 would be better. You can install it on your mac. If you are not running OS 9.2.2, then I would bring your up to that level first. Also if you are planning install get more memory, then install any version of OS X that is greater than 10.1. You should be able to install 10.3.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

Running 10.3.7 on mine just fine. 640meg memory. Definitely get more memory.Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

I started running 10.0 on my B&W with 64 megs of ram. I came to 2 conclusions:
Get some ram (I bought an extra 256 chip from OWC for $26...seems to be working fine)
If your using anything older than 10.2, then make sure you have OS 9 installed to use classic apps.

Well I will be installing it on a new drive---im not that techy on mac yet --so I really dont know what you mean by classic apps---and I really dont how to format a new drive --maybe you can tell me how---but if I use a new drive do I still need to put 9.2 on it first??? thanks
