I just unboxed my TAM after about ten years of storage. I have not tried networking it yet. Anything special I need to know to get it on the network?

The easiest thing to do would be to get a PCI Ethernet card for it.
Installed.



It has been some time since I have dealt with any pre-OSX systems, so I was skeptical that this was going to be easy. I guess I just need to dive in and see what happens.

You just need to connect that to a router with an active DHCP server and tell OS 7.6-9.1 to connect via Ethernet and have it use TCP/IP.

Mine runs this way and works fine, just browsers now are hit and miss with what they can handle, Apple's site works pretty good :)

Upgrade the RAM as high as you can get it.
Get it up to Mac OS 9 if it's not there already.
Install Classilla.
I second the Classilla install, avoid the urge (nostalgia?) to install an crusty version of Netscape as well, it had a long standing file related bug with the cache folder eating file handles on the disk, requiring a trip to Norton Disk Doctor land to resolve. Not a big deal with one computer, but I had school labs filled with them!
