I just bought a powerbook lombard of ebay and it has a dual boot thing where I can boot into OS 9.2 or OSX. It automatically boots into OS9.2 so how to make it so I can go into OSX at startup to see if it works?

Go into the Control Panel in OS9 and look for Startup Disk. Select the OSX selection. That should do it.

It's running 10.2 and 9.2 on a partion, 20Gb harddrive, 192MB of ram, 330mhz processor. I find it quite fast actually it opens most things with ease, havent tried photoshop yet though.

yes you can do it..however, itd be better if your were familliar with the inside. maybe this will help:

http://www.pbfixit.com/Guide/

asa PC user whos built 6 dual CPU machines, with DIY watercooling parts (thats right, NO prebought waterblocks) this kinda thing is cake for me.

i have to install a new DC in on my G3. doesnt look too hard.

hope that helps

EDIT: i didnt read, but im GUESSING it requires a T8 torx screwdriver. biggest PPITA youll look for. Home Depot has a set of torx for 6$, you get like 6 bits with it, SMALL sizes too, very useful. took me 3 weeks to hunt a T8 down.
