Re: PowerMac G4 733 Quicksilver

Thanks & noted, I tried the xbench before but it shows a comparison with G5 which I don't have and don't know how the performance compared with G3 (that I have).

So, if anyone knows any benchmark software can be performed good on G4 at classic OS, please let me know.

Thanks a lot.

Re: os9 boot disk

Yes, I think you may boot from OS9 CD and install into the same HD without formatting the existing system.

Re: iMac G3 OS922 wireless communicate with PB1400 OS761 questn

I know you can create a wireless network from your computer in OS X without a router, but I'm not sure about OS 9 Thanks.
