    My father-in-law just gave me 2 Macintosh's and an Apple IIe and I am looking to find someone with any information on where to get software to make them work. Any help would be appreciated.

    Depending on the Macs OS & RAM try mac the underdogs Plenty of games for System 5 6 & 7. Can't help on the Apple II's, I have a feeling you may have to resort to trawling eBay for disks.

    Thanks,

    The model numbers of the MAC's he gave me are M0001 and M0001w, I know those have 400k floppy drives, have you heard of anyone switching out the drive for a current one? (1.5mb)

    Also can i run OS 6 on those macs?

    No. I'm not sure, but I doubt the ROMs will handle the 800k variety; certainly not the 1.4mb variety. I think the Mac Plus was the first to be able to handle 800k.
    Definitely not. You have a plain 128k Mac (max system: 3.3) and a Fat Mac (512k; max system: 4.1). See:
