Ok, so in a moment of madness, I rescued the above machine from a car boot sale (I don't know if these exist in the States, its like a whole field of yard sales) for £10 (about $15). The seller said it was working, but for the money I wasn't too worried. Just wanted to play about with it for a while So - plug it into a display, USB keyboard and mouse borrowed from a PC (sorry). Chimes. Good start. About half a second of Apple logo on grey, and then the broken folder of death. Oh dear. A couple of hours on google hasn't solved this, so I'm asking for help. I have no boot disks, and the keyboard is a PC one so (as i'm new to apple) if there's keys to hold during startup - if you know then please translate these to this keyboard! These are the specs as I know them: PowerMac G3 OS X Panther (what the guy told me) 3 sticks of unlabelled ram (so not sure how much but the apple label says 64mb) 6gb HDD The case is pretty enough that if this thing won't run, it may be turned into an aquarium or some other piece of furniture, but it would be great to have it running! Any help is appreciated.
