I recently aquired a powermac 9600. From what I can tell it has the lower voltage powersupply, and has a 2 gig hard drive with os 8.1. Due to my lack of an ADB mouse (and I do have one on the way) I can't get any deeper into the system specs. But I do understand that, well in 1997 anyway, this was a killer machine with 12 ram slots, ect. ect.
What I would like to possible do is max out the ram (if I can find out what kind I need), and if at all supported, install a IDE DVD Re-writer drive (Currently in a wintel PIII). Does anyone know if that drive is supported, and will work on mac os 9?
