Tom, That article applies to G3 Macs that can run OSX natively:
- iMac 233 MHz
- iMac 266 MHz
- iMac 333 MHz
- Power Macintosh G3 Desktop
- Power Macintosh G3 Mini Tower
- Power Macintosh G3 All-In-One
- iBook (FireWire)
- PowerBook G3 Series
Wouldn't aply to a Quadra.
In OS 6 and part of OS7, there was a 2G limit on the size of the boot partition. Apple docs say the partition size increased to "massive" with about 7.5 but I have one old Mac with 7.6 that still required the 2G partition or it would not boot with an unpartitioned 4.3G drive.
Jeff's spot on--we can't be sure until Tec Puppy posts the exact OS version.
