    I have a Summer 2001 iMac G3 with Mac OS X 10.1, and I would like to install Jaguar on it. Before doing this, I wanted to check if I needed to update to the latest version of 10.1. This would be pretty hard, considering that I would need a connection to get the software update and I have no clue how to get connection on such an old computer. Also, is there a way to keep OS X 10.1 on the computer so that I could switch between the two versions? Thanks for any help you guys can give!

    This type of question would go better in the PowerPC forum. But as I recall, the only OS X upgrade that has ever had a version requirement was Lion. And there it was just so you had the Mac AppStore application.

    Mac OS X 10.2 needs to be bought, you can't download it via Software Update.

    Software update, upgrade--what's the difference?
    To run both 10.1 and 10.2 on that Mac, you need to partition the internal HDD, but you need to boot from the Installation CD to do so. I don't know, how big your HDD is, but it will probably be 20 to 60 GB.
