Greetings, (this is my first post on 68kmla) I newly installed Mac Os 8 on my Mac IIci's 72gb external drive using resources patches and Wish i was(and not Born Again). Now it boots just fine and i find it significantly more stable than my old system 7.1 which was also somewhat stable. But what satisfies me the most is the fact that now i can access HFS+ file system. So i partitioned this large drive to get a large 69gb HFS+ storage drive and a 1gb HFS drive to boot Mac Os 8.1. What i am wondering now is about enhancing the responsiveness of the computer and the UI's speed: Will replacing the RAM SIMMs (two 4mb and six 2mb - 20mb) by eight 16mb SIMMs to have 128mb of RAM will do so, and is it worth it? I'm asking here for opinions because in the other hand -- if i don't get more ram, i would later (by the end of january) have the occasion to have a woking SE/30 or a Powerbook 150. I really am wondering what is the most worth it. I also put my IIci's configuration below: -Cache card on; -9gb Quantum internal drive w/ system 7.1 and 6.0.7 on it; -72gb HP external drive in an Optimac box; -20mb ram -8°24 GC -Asante ethernet card Thanks for replies
