Re: Dual boot Mac OS 9

You are quite correct. I have a PowerBook G4 - An error on my part due to running a range of old Macintosh Laptops and mistyping the model.

Oh, well. Lets hope he figures it out.

Re: Dual boot Mac OS 9

Here we go - (I added this picture via the boards Attachment feature) - If you have Tiger you can run Classic and that should be what you need to run your Mac OS9 application.

Re: Dual boot Mac OS 9

I was going to post an image here showing My PPC MacBook running Tiger with Mac Classic (Mac OS9) as a guide, with some notes to help ... but 'img' posts aren't allowed.

Is this right Admin?

Just an inquiry - not a complaint.

Re: 13" White Macbook For sale

What happened to the new bloke ...

The chap with the 'security' for Mac's post.

Have to agree, it was highly suspect but, y'know, we need a few new posts here.
