Hello, I have just come into possession of 6 Mac Cpu's which are nearly identical with my DA G4. The newspaper I work for didn't know what to do with them. They didn't want to hassle with putting them up on eBay and spending the labor to ship them and they were just lying around. I offered to pay

Do you run OS 9 at all? If you do I think 10.4.11 is as high as you can go and still operate under system 9. I have a Digital Audio G4 which runs great under 10.4.11. I also have a processor upgrade. On Jan 15, 12:26 pm, stevo137 stevo...@hotmail.com wrote: I have a G4 mac, 400 Mb processor, 1
