Hi all,

I want to add a USB 2.0 card to my G4 desktop (1ghz, OS 10.2.4)
I found one manufacturer (Iogeer) that says my system needs 10.0.3 so I am up to that OS with that, Belkin say I need 10.2.7 for theirs. Does anyone have any experience upgrading their mac g4 with this os? I now only have USB 1.1.
I want USB 2.0 so i can use Usb harddrives that are always cheaper than ones with firewire,
Of course, I could upgrade my OS to meet required specs.
Thanks,

Mark/boston terrier

bump.
basicly the same question, what cards are compatable and is there a speed difference compared to built in?
