Different Memory and 2nd HD

Yes, I agree, it's important to differentiate between memory (RAM) and disk space (hard drive, flash, floppy, etc.). I've worked with PCs for quite a while now so I know the difference between these things. Since I just bought this Blue & White Power Mac G3/350 (code name Yosemite) loaded with OSX (and nothing else), I am just now learning about 0SX and Macs in general. I need to install and second larger hard drive in this computer since it only has 6 gigs and I need a lot more. Based on what I've read so far, it looks to be pretty easy.

Macs and PCs are pretty much the same, you don't need to throw away your PC knowledge coming into Macs.
