No problem. My post was a little vague.
Dual booting my iBook G3 with Mac OS 9.2.2 and Mac OS 10.3.9.
I used to have a really old computer. It was a Macintosh Classic 2.
I had a Mac Plus, which I used with a 20 Mb drive, (- that is not a typing error. 20Mb!) and I still have my 7500, which I need to power up soon to extract some old files (very old!)
I sold my first Mac, an LC II, but still have the 6100, the B/W G3, and 5 iMacs (3 of which are in daily use).
Running Photoshop on the LC required patience; it took a couple of minutes just to boot System 7, another minute to launch PS, and loading a large TIFF scan meant taking a coffee break. With the box maxed out at 12 MB, there was much swapping to and from the hard disk.
Figuring out how to play Oregon Trail in Mac OS 9.2.2 on my iBook G3.
Updating my iMac G3 to Mac OS Tiger 10.4.11.
I just ipdated the AirPort Admin Utility and the AirPort Setup Assistant on my iBook G3 Clamshell and it can now handle modern encryption and connect to my AirPort Express. This also updated the firmware on the AirPort card to version 9.5.2.
Here's a picture I found online.
Those are considered collectors items today. There is, however, a problem which all of them will have by now; capacitor failure. The type of capacitor used on these old Macs would leak electrolyte over time and will damage the logic board it not fixed. The fix consists of replacing every capacitor on the logic board with new ones that won't leak.
Or, you could rip out all those pesky electronics and fill it with water and fish...
