I think there are still some issues with it being partly "locked down", I don't know Macs, so I don't know what sort of admin functions there are hidden away from the user account that's on there... I have the install disks for OS9.2 so thought I'd reinstall that, give me a clean slate to play with, but it's having NONE OF IT, says "can't restore that disk, it's your start up disk", even if I boot off the CD... lots more to learn still.
Are you suggesting I PAY for an operating system? Putting Linux on is one option, but I want to learn Mac things, so would kind of be defeating the object of getting this thing.
