    Elderly iBook
    I have a Power PC G3 with 384MB and it is running OS 10.1.
    I haven't used it for many years, now I need the portability but I seem unable to load current software from my desktop iMac G5. When I say current, I mean current to me, eg Photoshop CS (yes, just CS!), Appleworks 6 etc.

    So, can I update the OS to a version to run these programs?
