    I have one... but...
    It can't boot from CDs. This makes Mac OS X imposible to install. :-\ Yeh, I'm a Mac OS "9er"
    Anyway, any help would be appriciated.
    Thanks.
    Cant wait for OS X! I have my Jaguar CDs ready...

    Or is there a way to install it without booting from a CD?

    I would call Small Dog Electronics and ask them what they have available. They don't have anything listed on their website, but they are a repair shop, so they probably have what you are looking for.
