    2. Mac II, Quadra & Centris

      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • Glad to "meet" you all! Thanks for the heads-up on AFPBridge @superjer2000 - I'll look into it!   
    • At that shipping price, I'm definitely interested, feel free to shoot me a DM.

    • I don't know what exactly went wrong, but if anyone is watching this thread, or if this can help anyone in the future, here is how I fixed the issue.  I started over.  The old HD I was trying to use was pretty small in the first place, at only 6GB.  I replaced it with a 160 GB HD (yes, I know I can only use 128 GB) and reinstalled the operating system from a disk I made and the printing software from the original CD.  That in itself was a learning experience because I have never made an install CD from a disk image before.  I bought the Sawtooth off ebay, and of course it didn't come with the disc.  I added a second 160 GB Hard drive and learned about Master and Slave settings, and how some hard drives are downright uncooperative about cable select.  I also learned about gray plugs and black plugs, and that HDs are cranky if their jumper settings don't match the plug.  I had never previously worked with more than 1 drive in a G4, so the learning curve was huge.  I have one more computer program to test before I can say I am completely done with this G4, but things are looking (and working) much better.  Thanks to all the people on other threads who have given me advice, explanations, and education.  It has helped beyond measure.
