Hi

My Mac Performa 6320 died recently and with it the ability to print to my laserwriter via the ADB port. I have a G4 running OS 9.1. Does anyone know if it is possible to run Mac OS 7.5.3 on the G4 (as well as OS 9.1)? Along with the 7.5.OS, I would need to install Appleworks for what I want to do. Can this be done successfully and would I be able to print to the Laserwriter using an adaptor to convert the usb port to ADB?
QUOTE Thanks

No you cannot run system 7 on a G4 Mac

It would be easier to buy a new laser printer, check out ebay

There is a DB to ethernet adapter for the printer. Asanti made one. The postscript driver in up to OS 10.4 will driver the printer. I still use a Laserwriter pro 630.
