    I just picked up an old Power Mac 8600, it has Newer Technologies 300 mhz G3 card installed in it, does anyone know where I can find processor drivers for OS X? I know you can install OS X on old Power Macs with XPostFacto and an accelerator card. I may not need drivers for the card, but is there a place where I can update its most recent driver? Has anyone attempted this on a Newer Card? I don't want to muck up a working system so your advice is appreciated.

    Why don't you go to the XPostFacto web site? They will tell you everything that you need to know.

    I looked at XPostFacto's web page, although they don't have any direct information on how the upgrade will effect the Newer Card. I know Sonnet has drivers for their cards so they work in OS X, I'm just not sure what will happen if I try to install OS X without the neccessary software for my Accelerator Card.

    Clearly you have not availed yourself of the resources on the XPostFacto website. There is ample information there to take care of whatever issues you have--if only you would take advantage of it.
