    I know that the maximum OS for these is 7.6.1 and I currently have 7.5 installed. Is there a way to install OS 8.1? Two of these have only 4 MB RAM, so I wouldn't want to try it on those, but the other has 8MB which would still be extremely slow, but still fun to play with.

    Any thoughts?

    Otherwise, any offers for these three systems? :D

    Ah, thank you. I had seen that page once upon a midnight clear but couldn't find it again for the life of me.

    Good thing some people know how to find things. :D

    Now, does anyone out there have an OS 8 CD? I will also need an older CD-ROM.

    Just a note..... IT WILL BE SLOW!!!!

    OS 8 had a hard time running on my Centris 610 with 16mb ram...

    It will be hard tp see as the powerbook is B&W.....

    good luck anyway and tells us how it turns out!
