usually need to use a hard disk utility like hard disk toolkit and seperate the hard disk into multiple >2gb partitions. then install 7.5 on the hard disk. Just be aware 7.1 or 7.0 would be better with the low amount of ram the SE has.

HFS non-plus technically supports very large partitions, but there are limits by operating system. System 7.5.2 and higher on 680x0 systems has a maximum partition size of 4 GB. A PCI Power Mac is required to support 2 TB partitions prior to Mac OS 8.1. However, 8 GB is the maximum partition size that is bootable on Mac OSes prior to Mac OS X, and on systems prior to the Power Mac G4 Digital Audio.
