So, thanks to you fellows advice, I have been able to replace my logic board in my g3 blueberry 350 slot loader. I put a new 500mhz board in and it went smoothly, I had to modify the heat shield at the back with tin snips so the VGA or whatever would stick through. works great.

Anyway, I also have an indigo g3 400mhz with fire-wire ports on the side. My blueberry does not have these firewire ports. So my question is: Is there a way to switch the fire wire ports between the two, or am I better off sticking the faster logic board in the imac with the firewire ports?

erm, wazzatyousay?

You say you done plunkt der 500MHz MLB into das bluberry iMac. All 500MHz MLBs have FW ports. Therefore your bluberry now has FW ports. Unless I missed something.

I guess youre right. That makes me feel retarded. My 500mhz DOES have firewire ports:therefore, ignore all of this.
