I just got my first Mac, a G4 iLamp. I realize it is old but it came with 10.1 installed and I have 10.2 generic install (2 discs) so I figured out how to boot from them by holding down "c" but after I installed it loooked the same as it did before (said os x 10.2 in "about") but it saven everything. This is a hand me down and what I want to do is, in PC language, do a clean install with 10.2.

What are the steps?

Thanks in advance!!

Ok after much googling I figured out how to install on my own, thanks.

One more question, how do I maximise the browser?
