    Ethernet in DOS Compatible Macintosh

    G'day all, Upon discussing with a mate of mine who wants to setup LAN party, I want to join but unique way - I want to use Macintosh with DOS Compatible. (to be specific - Power Mac 6100/66 DOS or Quadra 800 with DOS card which is 486 100mhz) I thought I did connect to ethernet network on my 8600 with PC Compatible card back in late 90s/early 2000s but I cannot remember if It was via ethernet or modem. Anyway - does anyone know how to setup on Power Mac 6100 with AAUI ethernet? Cheers AP

    550c power issues

    That what I second that too - check for broken/rotted traces etc - my 550c had broken trace which caused issues and since then its fixed. Cheers AP

    PowerBook G3 PDQ overclock to 333mhz?

    I was thinking about that - and I thought because I really like the PDQ and I didnt want to push it, 333mhz is good enough as it is. If I get another 300mhz (3rd CPU) then I'd consider it. No difference between 300 and 333mhz. While I was benchmarking I was touching the CPU area and I was able just to touch it it was hot to begin with - IMO both 300 and 333mhz felt the same "heat" from it. It has been more than 32 hours now - Ive copied about 8gb across network from the server to PDQ last night and it performed well. I tried installing OSX.3 - wouldnt allow to install, Ive forgotten what the program was called to boot into un-supported OSX! Edit: it was XPostFacto. that I needed... Cheers AP

    PowerBook G3 PDQ overclock to 333mhz?

    Confirmed. Since I had a spare 300mhz CPU I decided to see it myself. Moved the resisters over and put it back in PDQ and powered on - at first go it fired up! System info shows 333mhz - Ripper! As I really wanted 333mhz. Decided to benchmark it - same specs as iMac 333mhz except the Hard Drive (PDQ has IDE to SD adapter in it) I don't have access to PowerBook G3 Lombard to see what the difference would be. Cheers AP

  14. G'day all, I have this spare PowerPC 604ev 300mhz Daughter Card for Power Mac 8600/9600. Currently my 8600 has 250mhz card in it. I was reading up on XLR8 page about overclock to 350mhz or 400mhz. Should I do it? (FYI my soldering skills is good) Cheers AP
