Phil,

She's the little train that could. lol
It took a bit, but she finally got there.

I'd like to do that to my PB 5300.

Cool.

If I had any free time these days, I'd pull out one of my 2400's and give it a shot. I wonder how much faster it would run if the internal hard drive was replaced with a fast CF-to-IDE adapter.

This was the first real hack thing I did...about 10+ years ago now, and it's what got me hooked on the retro computer thing. That seems so long ago.

Yeah, she battles, but gets there in the end. I can't say OS X is really usable, and running quicktime vids for any length of time the system will freeze. I think she overheats.
Anyway, It's a shame I have to sell her, but I'm hoping to gather enough funds to by an IMSAI sometime in the near future. Have to sell a few more things too of course.
She's up in sale at Yahoo auction Japan now.
