10.2.8 Go on ebay and buy a copy of OS X version 10.2 (Jaguar) and then use software update from the apple menu to get to 10.2.8.

Dude, that is old school. Props for getting the thing running!

If you can afford it, you can actually max out the RAM to 512MB. That's not what's listed for the machine, but people have done it. See this article for more: http://www.lowendmac.com/pb2/g3series.shtml.

And I agree that Jaguar is probably the best you can get out of the thing. Remember to buy it on CD, not DVD. :)

I'll have to agree here.. I had 10.2.8 on my PB when I bought it, it's really cool, doens't have spotlight or dashboard and it's a bit different looking, but runs great!
