Thanks, I'll have to take a closer look at the specs on them then.  I've
had them working fine with the Macs I have and the converter, so I could
experiment a little!

Aha, thanks for that, I was beginning to think it may have been a bit of
a dumb question having read on a bit in the manual and found something
on clean installs - I must get on and try it really.  The main reason I
haven't is the lack of an Apple CD for the LC's - the PPC unit is
working OK and I don't really want to mess with it until I know what I'm
doing - with any luck the Apple CD I now have will work fine when put
into the external casing I've got.  I really ought to open the MacOS 8
box too - it's still in its shrink wrap!  With any luck I'll track down
a cheap copy of 8.6 soon as a few apps I've seen around seem to use it
as the minimum requirement (Opera springs to mind as the main one as I
want to use it for web page checking).
