    Can I add a Maxtor 120GB HD to A G3/350 Rev2? Present HD is a 6GB, seated in a stacked bracket. If so, can I make it bootable? Can I install OS X and boot? Or is this not the best drive option and take it back for something else?

    Yeah, the RevA (the 350Mhz was revA not 2) G3 Blue and Whites have a faulty ATA adapter when it comes to a secondary drive. Leads to data corruption, or so I hear. You can still get it to work correctly if you purchase an ATA PCI card.

    OWC has an ATA/133 card for like $80 I believe.
