    1-Which Airport Card should i get ? the original or Apple airport card? of course its not the extreme?


    2-Is there a way to display a res higher than 800x600? am running 10.3.9


    3-The seller told me that the battery is dead (its shows 0% on the screen) is there a way to test/fix it? before i get rid of it?

    You need the Airport card. They are not cheap. You might be able to use a USB dongle though instead.

    Not with the internal LCD.

    Short answer - no.

    Long answer - noooooooooooooooooooo.

    I think you can just delete the System Folder and suchlike from your drive. I installed OS9 on my PowerBook by just dragging the entire folder over from my old iMac.

    Ok, if I were you I wouldn't run OS X on that thing because of the screen size and amount of memory. How could you possibly do anything with a 800x600 resolution? Also, if you stick to running OS 9 you can probably get away with a 3GB hard drive (unless you have a lot of music or something) but if you use OS X you will almost certainly want to upgrade that.

    You should also probably do a clean install of the operating system so you can start fresh. Again, I'd highly recommend sticking with OS 9.
