    Is this your first mac? How did you get an eMac? I'm guessing it's from the refurb store?

    Good luck and enjoy :)

    Good for you. I love my eMac, though Final Cut finally outgrew it.
    Hint: google "screen spanning doctor"
    It is an excellent applescript that unlocks the video card's ability to dual display (not mirror). I have had it enabled since the beginning and the extra 19" monitor is a real godsend. Good luck!
    P.S. I think OSX requires a minimum of 500Mhz. I dont think It'll even run Open Firmware 1.25Mhz system. :D

    Looks awesome. I have an eMac from 2002, still going strong and overclocked too.

    kammon-

    That emac looks awesome. They are very attractive computers, plus still very capable. You can always add memory and Tiger too. :)
