Yes, I have 3.3 running very very very nicely on a HP 715/64. It's very
fast with 256mb of ram I might add. HP and Nextstep are _really_ fussy
about cdrom drives. I finally succeeded with a SS4's 1/3rd height 2x
shoehorned into an external case.
I didn't mention it as it is not a free system as the OP seemed to be
looking for. It can be found often on eBay however.
Live like you will never die, love like you've never been hurt, dance
like no-one is watching.
