ok, so i got a rev a imac 233 bondi from a guy. he said the flyback was shot and that he had been running it with a db-15 to vga adaptor for a while till he got a g4. now i have it and have pulled all the usefull guts out and threw away the videoboard and the crt and the case. i was never a fan of the bondi blue. the blueberry is a different story, and dont get me started on how much i love the indigo.
i want this badboy in a case. i have it all laid out loading ubuntu right now (as osx on this would be deadly and i want to play with ubuntu, to get a feel for it). the only case i have is a 7100. it is all gutted and ready for a new everything transplant. my questions are:
1. how many ide devices can be put on each bus? can i get two on each or is it just one cd and on hd?
2. the power supply is naked (i have been shocked already) and i dont want to put it right on the all metal case of the 7100. what can i wrap it in or put around it?
3. as for the mobo, i dont want it in the 'under-the-imac' housing anymore. what is the best way to keep it from the metal while unable to use the stand-offs (the 7100 onlyhad on in the direct center)?
i wil keep the imac mobo housing, because when i get time, i will probably make a plstic case like the g5 style case for the imac mod...i cant remeber who did it, but i'm sure you guys remeber.
peace and love
