i got an imac g3 from a friend of mine who got it from someone. my friend tried installing AOL onto it and couldn't. So i brought it home to see if i could install AOL onto it and i couldn't. There was no setup.exe icon showing where all the versions of AOL are and when i clicked on AOL 7.0 etc what was there looked like a blank piece of paper. So i googled a few things and printed out pages of things to do. Well one thing I can't do is rebuild the desktop. i looked on the computer and mac os 9.1 isnt on it the computer has mac os x 10.2.1 on it to rebuild i think you need 9.1 on it also i get a message about classic saying no volume in the folder or something like that. does anyone know where i can get a 9.1 disc for the mac?

I'm confused..you are trying to run a 'setup.exe' file on a Mac? Those executables only run Windows..not on the Mac..do you have the AOL software that's specific to a Mac? If so, what version of Mac OS does it require?

Regards

Mac's don't use ".exe" files. You need to find an AOL installer for a Mac.

Do a Google and you will find many requests for an AOL installer for Classic (OS 9). AOL and Netscape once upon a time were popular with Classic users, however AOL abandoned Netscape back in 2007/2008.

You may well have to update the firmware on the G3 iMac and install OS X.2 Jaguar.

Why do you need AOL in the first place...its nothing but a spy. Anyway you need OS9.1
or 9.2. And you have to partition the drive ETC....

Yes you need a hub or router between the Mac and DSL or Cable. If its in OS9 you need to turn on Apple Talk. Still do not get why you need AOL...if you need dial up go to Fastermac.net
