    I have an old imac g3. It's the original one running os9. I want to be able to use it with my canon sd600 camera but cant get it to work. What do I need to do, and are there any drivers or software i can download to get it up and running?

    Well if you wanna use iPhoto that's a negative, you of course need X. But your solution might be within your camera. If your camera gives you an option of plugging it in as a camera or a USB drive, choose USB drive. All your pictures will show up as a removable drive on your desktop when you plug it in.

    You can probably forget about drivers tho cuz most cameras now-a-days require X for driver installation.
