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.

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.
