Yes, I know its old but I love it and I've always wanted one.

Bourght this with original 6gb drive was in so I replaced it with a 120gb Fujitsu drive (MHV2120AT) installed panther, doing updates (to 10.3.9) got a kernal panic, held down power button but wouldnt restart. So I removed the battery. Now when trying to boot I get this.

The pram is dead and I have a new one coming in the mail.

Help Please.

EDIT: Removed HD, booted from disk, told to boot from disk, attached HD, told to boot from HD, booted from HD. But I suspect if i removed the power and battery it will happen again. Is this just a dead pram batt.?
