Ah splendid. The answer I asked for - if not exactly the one I was looking for!
I will add some more memory and try to buy a 10.4 off internet. So here is my auxillary question - can I jump from OX 10.2 to 10.4.11 or even 10.5 without going through intermediate 10.3 etc steps?
Any advice on this gratefully recieved.
let's get some more details on your g4. what type of computer is it, how much memory is in it now, and what's the processor speed? you can go directly from 10.2 to 10.4. depending on what you have 10.5 may or may not be a wise move. and you want to buy the black discs. not the grey ones. do you have a dvd drive? show us what you got first.
Well in outer Mongolia ASAP means something totally different and involves weaving tent fabric from camel hair so that has taken me a bit of time.... However if you have the patience of a saint and the compassion of Mother Theresas' more helpful sister then....
So it would appear I have the following supersonics:
60 Gb HD
G4 dual processor 1GHz
Now the critical issue here is that I get the computer up to speed enough to be compatible with a modern photo printer - which I think needs to be 10.4.11 or even 10.5
Any assistance would be most gratefully and humbly recieved.
