i recently bought an indigo clamshell on ebay w/o an operating system. the clamshell has a 3gb HD, 366mhz processor, and 320mb ram..i bought a actually apple osx 10.1 cd with the option to install os9 as well. the question i have is 10.1 gonna run fine, could i even run 10.3 if i wanted to? 320mb ram is pretty decent i know. also, since the clamshell doesnt have an operating system already (i got it for $90), do i have to do anything special when i put the cd in and install osx 10.1?..any help would be great..thanks in advance.

10.1 should run fine. I've even ran 10.4 on one. What's going to hold you back is the hard drive size, 3GB is nothing, and an OS takes up space. I would stick with the plan and load 10.1.

Good Luck

That's so cool, I always wanted a Clamshell. If there is any chance at all of picking up a 10gb drive or something, to pop in, you could run 10.3, but with such a tiny drive, keep the OS as small as possible. Don't forget to miss out the language packs!
