Hello. I've lurked around these boards for a couple years now, but just decided to register today. Just wanted to introduce myself. Anyway, a friend of mine gave me his old iMac the other day. Here are the stats: G3 500MHz, 128MB memory, 20GB HD, OSX 10.3.3 Panther So, I want to use this computer pretty much just for GarageBand and iMovie. Being misinformed, I thought it maxed out at 512MB RAM, but after looking around here, I see that it is actually 1GB. I already ordered a 256MB piece off eBay, so that'll bump me to 384MB. Will that be enough to run these programs decently? I don't expect it to be spectacular, but will it be tolerable? Also, I tried to install Tiger through an external DVD drive, but the setup starts to go and then says it couldn't be installed. Is that just because of the insufficient RAM, or could there be something else. I see there's a 256MB minimum. And if I get it installed, will it run alright? Finally, I'm having some internet connection trouble. I'm using a Zonet ZEW2501 USB adapter. I downloaded the proper driver on my other computer and installed it on the iMac, and it will work for pretty swiftly a brief amount of time and then quit. For example, I've tried to do the software update, and it will download to about 1.1MB and then just stop and timeout. In Safari, I can click through 2 or 3 pages and then it will stop working as well. Any help on these topics would be appreciated. Thanks!
