    Sorry everyone. I'm sure there is a thread for this somewhere, but 10 minutes of looking didn't get me very far.

    I just bought a used PowerMac! 2.0ghz. I am so excited. I have been using a iBook G3 700mhz for over 3 years now and I wanted to setup a station for myself. I figured it was time to upgrade.

    This computer does not come with a wirless card. I am going to buy a AP Extreme card from the Apple site, but no where does it say i need a antenna? Do I need 1? Where can I get it?

    It doesn't have a operating system. I have a family pack of Panther. Should I grab Tiger?

    HD. I know there is a spot for a secondary HD. Do I need a special type? Or can I just grab the one out of my portable HD. My portable HD is a external drive case with a drive in it.

    Any other goodies I should know about?

    Thanks for helping out "the new guy"!
