Thanks, I'll have to take a closer look at the specs on them then.

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). ** end quote [the pickle] -- Paul Tansom: - contact [EMAIL PROTECTED] for more information Internet and Intranet Solutions -- http://www.aptanet.com/ -- Quadlist is sponsored by <http://lowendmac.com/> and...
