   Actually, it probably means that someon used the install disk from
their G3, since this thing shipped with System 7.5.something. :7) OK,
OK, their could have been a G3 card in there, too. Have you looked
through www.xlr8yourmac.com for all their reports of upgrades?
   Anyway, as someone else mentioned, Yellow Dog Linux ought to run
great on this system, or NetBSD.

   What's it running? Can you find the Apple System Profiler in the
Utilities folder?

   Nice haul.

   I have some Mac Zips. Hey, what're you going to do with it? I have an
external SCSI Jaz drive (and 5 or 6 2 GB carts) I've been looking to
