    OS Classic on Mac Pro (printer problems and other issues)
    I owned a G5 until a few days ago. Now I have a Mac Pro with OS X 10.4.8. When I tried to install Classic applications I normally used, it says I can't, and lately found out that ther's no classic environment anymore.
    I have an EPSON 1280 which had a great control window before printing in Classic, which allowed me to use all the levels and such. Now, I can't control anything with Page Setup.
    And also: how can I prevent that annoying alert window (Internet Connection: do you want to stay connected?) from popping up every 15 minutes?
    Can anybody please help?

    to answer your printer question, in Mac os X, in the print window that pops up, click on the drop down list (by default it's on page layout i think) and there will be a number of different categories with their own adjustments....not sure about ur second question

    You can't Install Classic because you are on an Intel Mac. Classic is PPC only, which is why it worked fine on your G5. You either need to find a Epson printer driver for OSX or buy a different printer.
