Hi, I have just been given a Powermac G4 350mhz, with OS X 10.5.9 on it.


I want to get this system up to scratch and this is my first real effort to move into Mac on a limited budget.


It has no airport card and I was hoping for directions on what one to get for it. I realise there are different types and I am not sure which one to source.


Are there any specs for this system or any downloadable manuals for this G4.


It is a dual boot system with two hard drives. With my sorting it out, I ended up with OS X on both drives. I realise one is meant to have OS 9.2 on it to boot older programs. I don't have OS 9.2 and the X 10.5.9 doesn't seem to have 9.2 with it. Is 9.2 downloadable and if so where.


Are there directions on how to correctly set up a dual boot arrangement. I have worked with PC's and I am not sure if they are setup like mac's. With PC's you install the older version then the newer one, which newer system provides you with a boot screen. Is the mac dual boot one that will start in OS X and when you start an older program it will boot 9.2 to run it.


I realise there are a lot of questions here, but any help will be greatly appreciated.


Regards John

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.3.x), 350mhz
