    Hi Everyone
    I purchased this laptop for a bit of fun and to have a play with a mac being a windows man but liking the feel of the mac my problem is that the OS is in Dutch and there dosen't seem to be a way of changing it i have tried installing OS7.5 again but accidently made it launch as a text file and carn't seem to change it back.

    I have a copy of OS9 but need more memory to install it (not easy to find at the right price).

    If any one can help with any of the above i will be very greatful

    Download 7.5.3 in the language you want from Apple Support and reinstall it being careful, AFAIK there isnt a way to change the language within the old systems (It was touted as a new feature of 10.0 AFAIK). - The PowerBook 1400 series doesnt support the 7.5.5 Upgrade - Id be careful, it may need enablers, and you may be safer attempting to purchase a used copy of OS 7.6 or OS 8.0/8.1 as they should install fine on your PowerBook :)
