osx likes memory; more is definitely better.  i've had things crash -
like firefox update - and just not launch - like the latest realplayer
- because my osx 10.2.8 beige g3 has only 128M.

" It takes 100mHz SODIMMS (133 will work also) so old laptop memory often
" can be scrounged.

warning will robinson!  danger!

-some- 133MHz sodimms are compatible, some are not.  iirc it's a
question of addressing and/or refresh timing.  check first!
btw anyone here know the mojo for burning an iso image file to a cd-r
on 10.3?  10.2 has 'disk copy' but 10.3 doesn't - and the 10.2 util
doesn't run under 10.3.
