" From: Phil Stracchino <phil.stracchino at speakeasy.net>
" We just scored a stack of ten beige Power Mac G3s, all of them labelled
" as being 32MB/4GB/24xCD, three 233MHz/512k, seven 266MHz/512k. I'm not
" quite sure yet what we're going to do with ten beige G3s. I figure
" we'll set up two of them for the kids, and possibly cluster the other
" eight at some later time.
" Anyone have any suggestions on PCI ATA66/100/133 cards that will work in
" these? LowEndMac says the onboard EIDE interface is pretty slow.
" Also, anyone have any compatible RAM in 128MB or larger sticks lying
" around...? I'd like to put at least 384MB in the ones we're going to
" actually run, and 512MB or more would be better, in order to run OSX on
" them. They have three memory slots, up to 512MB per slot in low-profile
iirc max ram per slot is 256M, for 768M total.
i have a beige g3 with 128M, and it runs 10.2.8... yes, more would be
better. i'd like more too.
4G is also a little on the tight side, but it's all i have too.
it does sometimes freeze. i've found that d/l updates to the desktop,
then installing them is more reliable than installing straight off the
net. and i had to back down from the latest realplayer, which demands
interesting that 3rd parties like firefox, realplayer, opera all
support 10.2, but apple doesn't.
gonna centralize user mgmt and /Users?
