    iMac internal modem?

    Thanks sg, I found the modem update 2.x off of Apple's support site (software downloads, needed to login though). I ran it after booting into 9.1. Booted back into X and had been on for over an hour and had downloaded a large file, so at first it seemed to work. However, after initially...

    iMac internal modem?

    My G4 will dial in (to Earthlink) but there is no modem sound; changing the prefs has no effect. In addition, after a few minutes it will randomly drop the connection (usually when downloading a big file.) Steve

    Changing directories in Terminal

    How do you change directories with multi-word names when using the Terminal app? For example if I wanted to change to a directory called "My File", if I use cd My%20File I get a directory does not exist error. The only work-around I've found is to rename the file in the finder to a name...

    Questions regarding OS X on 2nd internal drive

    Alan, How did you format your second drive? I have a 20 GB (original WDC) drive and a second Quantum 30 GB drive on my 450MP. I used the OS9 Erase Disk and formatted it for Mac OS Extended. I then used Disk First Aid to repair. I next used the OS9 System Install CD to load 9 onto the...

    Alan, Just make sure you use the OS9 Software Install CD rather than the Software Restore CD. Otherwise you'll end up with Classic choking when run from OSX. See <a href="">Classic won't start: HD Drivers</a> in the Report Problems...

    Classic won't start: HD Drivers

    The exact error is: "This startup disk will not work on this Macintosh model. Use the latest Installer to update this disk for this model." It is in a dialog box with a "Restart" button. Could they have used more "this"' if they tried? Steve
