    Sweet angel excellent finding I gave you (+) for that. I'm curious though how did you find that? Besides a google search lol. Do you know any sites that run different Mac OS versions? Cause to be honest I can't do anything on a Mac. Thank you again ComputerNerd22

    It's been a while since someone has brought this one up. Compaq is doing a great service to the community by keeping testdrive going. IIRC, I'd posted this a few years ago. Thanks for reminding the community

    Do you mean linuxes for mac? Might want to visit PenguinPPC for some Macintosh/Apple alternatives.

    Not to turn this into a linux thread, but I found a nice distro of debian and put it on my PowerBook 540c.

    (Yep, another MCSE using a Mac at home! LOL)

    I didn't know that the testdrive still exsisted! Thanks for the link!

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
