    Just think... a whole generation will be growing up never having heard the dance of modem negotiation.

    That was fantastic though.

    except he got it wrong, that is a green slot-loading model and it's not a 1998 model. There were only Bondi iMacs in 1998 because they came out in August. That isn't a 266 or a 333MHz either, it's likely a green 350MHz model, slot-loading, which came out October 1999

    :)

    you got 9 on my 95... you got 95 on my 9... yummy!

    i'm not him, but it's an easy enough thing using VirtualPC. version 4 works well with that generation of iMac. :)

    Okay okay so there is that way, and it makes perfect sense and is easy and if i was at all serious i would do that...but...i wanted to do a native install...with floppies and everything...yea figure that one out...:p
