I'm assuming they are all necessary to install Panther, but I'm curious as to content of the discs... Thanks..

disc1 is the main OS and BSD system, disc 2 is applications and such, apple apps like mail, safari, address book, itunes, etc and fonts and desktop pics, disc 3 isnt necessary, its just extra language installations of everything else, in case youre using more than 1 language.

My three, of course yours may differ.
1. is a DVD with Panther and the option to install Classic.
I only used the DVD as I didn't need Classic.

2 & 3 which are CDs, contain Classic I think but it may be on the DVD, Language files, AppleWorks6 and a couple of games mixed up between them.

So if you're just upgrading from 10.2.8 you still need all 3 discs?

this is related to the topic of this thread so i thought i might stick it here. on ebay there is disc 1&2 (cd's) of panther has a current price of AU$60 which is unlikely to go up much further with 3 available while all 3 are available from another ebayer for AU$120 if you buy now. i currently have Mac OS 9.2.2 installed on my iMac G3 500 and i was wondering which one would be worth my while as im not sure if i need all 3 discs or just the first two. thanx

yes, as I said earlier in this thread, only the first 2 are required for a full installation.
